Editing text boxes on layers with Affinity Designer

Recommended Posts

Hello

 

I have several text boxes one behind another in a document.

 

In FreeHand I can select a text box that is behind of another and at that moment the element is active so I can edit the text and make changes.

 

It is not possible in Affinity Designer? I can do Option + Clic and select the element behind, but I can not edit the text. When I tried, the box text goes is deselected and the most front box goes active.

 

Selecting the text box via Layers panel comes to similar results.

 

Thanks.

I have three text layers.

 

I Alt + Click to select behind the top layer.

 

Once back most layer selected, I press T to switch to text tool.

 

Then am able to drag to select (or click to insert cursor) directly into the selected text frame (in this case the back one).

 

I then type a load of garbage ;)

Ok. In FreeHand is not necessary to select the letter of the Text Tool. Thanks :)
