Delete area inside marquee selectiuon

Recommended Posts

Hi all


When selecting an area, how can I delete or erase it? Hitting del on keyboard deletes the layer. Alt+Backspace is not available


Also, is it possible to do it across all layers simultaneously?

Hey Morne, welcome to the Affinity Forums :)

You need to rasterise the layer first. Simply Right-Click > Rasterise and then you can Ctrl+X to cut or hit the Delete key.

To do this across multiple layers, hold shift to select the desired layers in the Layers Panel and then repeat the above action. Note that they all need to be Pixel Layers so make sure you have rasterised them.
