I am having a problem using the Vector Crop Tool. I am using Affinity Designer version but I had the same problem with the Beta version.  On the tool bar I am seeing "Move to Back", "Back One", "Forward One" . "Move to Front", and "Convert to Curves".  This seems like the tool bar for layers rather than the Vector Crop Tool and the screen does not look like the one in your tutorial.  When I try to do a crop the image moves with the mouse leaving behind a transparent part of the new image. What should I do?

I suspect you are looking at the tutorial for the crop tool in Affinity Photo, not Designer. The top toolbar always have the same items in it (for the selected persona). The Context toolbar below it has options that vary with the tool. The tool & context options are different for the document-based crop tool in Photo vs. the vector-based one in Designer.


In Designer, the Context toolbar for the vector crop tool is empty. Refer to the status bar (at the bottom of the window) for an abbreviated set of instructions for how to use it, or to the built-in help system.
