Bringing png to top on tables

Recommended Posts

Hello. Brand new to Affinity Publisher. I'm trying to add a png file to a table and want it to sit over the top of one of the lines of the table, so you can't see the table through it. Is that possible? I've tried bring to front and top, played with layers, but I can't seem to make the image cover the lines of the table. It might be I have the wrong type of image file to do this or I'm doing something wrong, or even it isn't possible, but not sure what to do re this. Thanks for your patience with a not very technical novice. Any guidance welcome, I couldn't find any guidance re this online. Graphic attached to illustrate what I mean.

The PNG format supports transparency, so it is possible your file includes transparent sections as well as the dark opaque ones. One possible way to change this is to open that PNG file in Affinity & export it as a JPEG, which does not support transparency so nothing would show through it.
