Shortcut for clipping mask

Recommended Posts

I know how you can place an object into another in Affinity Designer from the layers panel.

Can this be done via the menu or via a keyboard shortcut upon selecting the two objects?

I find myself frequently clipping many texture/shading layers to the same base shape.

1. Draw the shade layer which automatically appears on top of existing base layer.

2. Cut shade layer.

3. Select base layer.

4. Paste inside.

Imagine my surprise when I just discovered this can be done in one step with Move Inside (Opt + CMD + G).
