Hi, 

would it be possible to have Layers that are working similar to Indesign. so that object inside the layers would close on all pages then turning the "global" layer of. I work with documents that contain e.g. Multiple languages. So I would need to enable or disable the layer of a specific language for all pages at the same time. Hope the explanation is sufficient. 

A workaround proposal would be equally appreciated.

I feel the same way. I need global layers to work on the magazines I create. In fact, every element producing its own layer on every page becomes a mess of layers. Good for single page designs, not good for multipage documents IMO. I'm not gonna use a workaround. This is the missing feature that's stopping me from adopting Affinity Publisher

Try making a series of Text Frames for each Language and grouping them. You could produce all one language versions by turning on/off in the master page and exporting... Or turn them on and off in the Master page's Edit Detached context menu and you can have a mix of items for one page and other pages would be just the English or French or Italian.
