I recently had to re-set Affinity Photo to factory defaults and now whenever I apply a Live Filter Layer it becomes nested under another layer (whichever is highlighted). I used to always have it apply as a separate layer, now I have to manually go and click on "release filter" to get it as its own separate layer. There must be a setting for this in preferences but I can't find it or am I doing something wrong?  TIA.

I suspect what you are looking for is in the Assistant Options, not in preferences.

Look for the item near the bottom of the Assistant window named "Adding filter layer to selection:". If it is set to "Add filter as child layer" try the other option ("Add filter as new layer").

Also make sure the "Enable assistant" option is on.
