Affinity has an annoying "active layer" concept that isn't clear at all!

Recommended Posts

I've discovered that a layer can be "active", but from at least the "dark mode" UI that's not clear at all.

Even more annoying is that if a different layer is active than where you are selecting objects in, if you move those objects on the artboard, they automatically jump to the active layer, which might be hidden, so your objects suddenly disappear!

Is there a way to disable this very weird behavior?

Hi Eobet,

There is no way to disable this at the moment I'm afraid.
