Layers Nesting vs Clipping and the Blue Line(s)

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I am looking for the meaning of a few visual cues in the In the layers studio. What is the difference between nesting and clipping? Also the visual icons of a line through the center of your children layer versus a blue square on top of the selected layer.  Please look at attached image for visual understanding.   Screenshots are taking from the iPad version of affinity photo. But my question is for both the desktop and the iPad version. 

 

Thanks.
