I know it sounds dumb to have onion skin on vector software but, some people including me, find vector graphics useful for animation because easy tweaking. So, I suggest you to add onion skin to Affinity Designer.

Can’t you use the opacity control on each layer for an onion-skinning effect? :/

I could use that but with how the layer works on AD and convenience I think onion skin wouldn't be that bad of a suggestion.

I didn’t say I thought it was a bad suggestion! I’m just not sure what you’d like to be able to do that you can’t already do quite easily with the existing controls.

I know that I can di that but, I would be a lot more convenient if there is onion skin.

See through ability is useful in other uses too than animation. That is the basic template layer functionality. 

I guess existing transparency controls could be tweaked for onion skinning functionality or developer might invent some other onion skinning method.

Im not sure if my suggestion helps, but when i want to create onion skin effect i just press a number on my keyboard as shortcut. For example If i click 8 it will get to 80% opacity, or 6 to make instant 60% opacity.
