Right hand side layers docker

Recommended Posts

In my original installation of the Affinity Designer (v.1.3.2) I somehow lost the colour picker and layers docker on the right hand side. I could not find anywhere any information how to bring the docker back.

I defaulted/reset the custom settings, thinking that maybe I have done something without noticing, but I still did not get the docker back. I had the normal tools on the left hand side, and on the top bar, but the docker with Colour, Swt, Brs, Styles, Layers, Effects, etc. was simply not there.

Watching some of the video tutorials about how you work with layers, I saw the tutor was referring to turning Show Layers under the View menu, but there is no such thing in the AD ?!?

So, the only way to bring these back was to uninstall the complete program and re-install it back. Now I have the dockers there, but I thought I will flag this possible bug or problem.

Hi Vdamjanovski,


Thank you for reporting this too us however I dont think that this is a bug. If you had gone too View>Studio>Reset Studio it should have brought back everything that you may have accidentally removed from the interface of the program. You can also hold down the CTRL key while opening up the program and you will get a menu asking if you would like to reset the program back to defaults. Doing this would have brought back any missing interface items.
