[By Design] ability to delete Pixels from locked layers

Recommended Posts

I found a surprising "feature" of affinity Photo..


When i lock a pixellayer, i can stil use the marquee tool, select an area of my locked pixellayer and delete it...     so whats the use of locking if i still can delete it ?  bug or feature ?

Hey Tom,


We lock layers slightly differently to what you may be used to. It is designed to simply perform a transform lock, so you cannot accidentally move an object or layer. We made the decision to still allow users to delete and edit the layer if it is selected. 

There are a few feature requests to add the functionality I think you were expecting.
