Affinity doesn't show layers panel

Recommended Posts

Hi. 
 

If you go to View>Studio tick the layers panel.

Point 1: I have this enabled but still cannot see a layers panel except in Export Persona (how on earth do I edit on a particular layer if I can't jump to it?!)

 

Point 2: An Illustrator-created PDF file imported to Affinity Designer only shows the bleeds/printer's marks layer and not the actual design layers. How do I make this visible?

As suggested by whomever is manning your Twitter account (@AffinityBySerif ) today, I reset Studio via View>Studio>Reset and the Layers panel magically reappeared (I do wish there was a simple interface button for layers!).

 

This allowed me to see that the layer containing the actual design was deactivated (unticked) and thus invisible. This is probably caused by some nasty shenanigans during Illustrator PDF export.

 

I have been to-ing and fro-ing all morning with my printers because they insisted they couldn't see the design, that my file was blank save the printing marks. When I described my Affinity situation (deactivated layer), and made the innocent suggestion that they might be having a similar problem, I received an email within five minutes requesting my final approval of the order  :unsure: . No admitting anything nor apologies, mind you.

 

So I imagine you won't needing the file? If you want it anyway to see where the hitch was, to where do I send it?

 

Thanks,

 

Tracey
