Affinity Designer Adjustment Layers Problem

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is the right place for this, but looking through tutorials didn't produce an answer to my question.

I've been trying to figure out how to use the adjustment layers in affinity designer with no luck. So for example, if I select 'Brightness and Contrast' a mask layer appears, but no tools appear to make  any kind of adjustment.

What am I doing wrong? Example file attached.

Update: tried this file on my partner's computer and it works just fine - I double click on the adjustment layer and the sliders pop up. This doesn't happen on my  machine.

Also, I uninstalled the program and reinstalled it - still no joy.
