Layer Panel preferences


Recommended Posts

Am I, or is Affinity Photo and Designer (windows) missing something here ?

 

In the help files.

 

To disable Auto-scroll:

  • On the Layers panel, click Panel Preferences and uncheck Auto-scroll.

If it is like the Mac version, it is the "Auto-scroll to show selection in Layers panel" item in Preferences > User Interface (not "Panel Preferences").

The Help is correct for the Mac software :)

So what the function of the "Auto-scroll to show selection in Layers panel" item in preferences > User Interface now? In Affinity Photo 1.6.6 on my iMac it makes no difference if it is checked or not; only the new Layers menu item has any effect.

 

Do you see something different?

Toggling the control in the app Preferences is effective and the scrolling status will be updated to match in the Layers Panel control.

That does not happen for me. The Layers panel menu item is not affected by the setting in the app Preference in any way. Weird!
