Open Affinity and have picture I was working yesterday on but nothing else.    Have I wrongly  entered something?    Unable to proceed with any edit.   Tried Car Q and restart but still same.  Stuck!

You probably pressed the Tab key.

Press it again and all will be revealed.

Plus your layer is an image --- Raster first!

Thats maybe the MOST 2 newbie-traps in Affinity!  

 

If i would be you/serif... i would show, explain, mark... all traps and confusing... as SECOND chapter  in the main-rtfm. there are more than newbie-ones: like a layer-select can switch or recolor the current fore/back-"swatch"... and so on.... 70% of "newbie"-questions are based of such  confusion/traps... from such confusing, not explaining... background.

If you ever plan a AP 2.0 with a new manual.. ask me, i could write such an "appendix"!  Nope, this is not concurrence to your Praxis-book, this is essential stuff, just "answering" forum-highlight-trap-questions...
