[APh] Lock layer transparency

Recommended Posts

As a long-time user of Photoshop (boo down with the cloud) and Corel painter, one key feature that Affinity designer would benefit from is the “lock layer transparency” tick box option. I have only played around with Affinity Designer for a day – there is probably a way of doing this with masks, however, I use lock transparency layer alll the time for blocking out silhouettes then paint within the layer. Also there is no support for TGA’s format – still widely used in the games Industry for texture creation.

The lock layer transparency is indeed missing.

In another thread, I asked how to fill the shape on a layer. In PS it's just a matter of locking the transparency, in AP there are a few workarounds, but I do miss the lock layer transparency.
