Boolean operations and compound shapes - Affinity *Photo*

Recommended Posts

Hi,

This question concerns Affinity Photo (as it is the only one I have). Several topics on the forum relate to doing boolean operations though the Operations tools, but I realized they are nowhere to be found in Affinity Photo, and most topics do not specify if they concern Photo or Designer.

Am I to understand that boolean operations on shapes are not supported in Affinity Photo?

I must have missed it.

You might also have missed that if you want, in the Photo persona you can use View > Customize Toolbar... to add any of the 5 boolean geometry operations or the 5 button geometry group to the toolbar as buttons. You may have to scroll down in the customize window to see those buttons.
