Hi @Capture It Photography,

Welcome to the Affinity Forums :)

Our sincerest apologies for the delayed response here, we're currently working through a backlog of tickets, so many thanks for your patience and understanding.

As can be seen in the below threads, this is unfortunately a limitation of Illustrator - when exporting to the .Ai format and importing into Affinity, we actually read embedded PDF data, rather than the Ai file itself. Illustrator will only export the layer names for the 'top' layers. You can find out more about this below -

I hope this clears things up!
