Photos »Deselect Layers« Does Not Deselect Designer Layers

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

unfortunately, the menu item Select → Deselect Layers does in fact not deselect Layers inherited from Designer (and probably Publisher, haven't tested) documents. (E.g. opened a logo constructed in Designer for further post-processing-effects via File → Edit in Photo).

Attached is a short demo, recorded with Photo V2.1.0.

If correct they were probably mine. I apologise for any mistakes made by my AI - I'm sure it will improve with time.

Thank you, although my issue concerns Photo, not Designer. I assumed it’s a Photo issue, but it seems to be a general problem in the suite. That’s unfortunate.

Hi @Mr. Doodlezz,

Thanks for your report!

As the above link provided by Carl shows, this has been raised previously for Affinity Designer, though I'm not 100% certain of the expected behaviour in either app with a Layer Container when using Select > Deselect Layers in AFP or Select > Deselect in AFD and therefore I am logging this with our developers to request an official response from the dev team.

I will be sure to respond here, and in the linked thread, with any information provided to clear things up for our users.

I hope this helps :)
