Layer creation and clipping mask behavior

Recommended Posts

I often use clipping masks in my illustrations, and the default behavior of Affinity Designer when creating layers needs some options.

I have a first layer, and a second layer within the first. I want to create more layers within the first, but every time I create a new one (shape, curve...) it gets on the top of the layer list. I thought clicking on the second layer before creating a new one would force AD to create it below or above the selected layer, no.

This behaviour is not exclusive to clipping masks : every new created layer is placed on top of the layer list.

Once my shape is created, I have to manually select it and drag it at the desired place in the layer list. And if I have LOTS of layers, i'm losing too much time reordering my layers.

Maybe with a shortcut or a checkbox, the idea would be to force AD to create the new layer above or under a selected layer in the list.
