iPad Designer V2: how to delete pixels within a selection?

Recommended Posts

Screen Video shows what I did. Image is an apple surrounded by white. I selected all the white, and the selection appears to be selecting just the white, but when I hit delete, the entire image is evacuated, as though there was no selection made, and that Designer didn’t know what the selection means.

Is there a way to select all the white (or whatever) and then, using one key, and not having to use the eraser, delete what’s selected, leaving what’s not selected behind?

Thank you

Check the type of your layer. Any image layer must be rasterized to pixel layer before you can delete part of it.

As Affinity loves the principle of non-destructive workflows, adding a mask and inverting the mask ist an alternative method to hide unwanted parts.
