Set Transparent Checkerboard Color in Affinity Photo

Recommended Posts

This is a minor request but ... it would be useful to me if I could set the checkerboard color used with transparency.

I'm trying to edit a png that is nothing but white and transparecy and with current checkerboard colors it's basically impossible to see.

My current solution is to add another layer, fill it with black and move it behind the orignal layer but I have to do that every single time I load the this kind of png so if I could set the background checkerboard color somewhere like in preferences or one of the view managers that would be great!

^ This would be an improvement.

Should be extended to choosing the background colour of the layer thumbnails, where the reverse issue arises…

Dark objects on black background = invisible.
