How to use one shape to subtract from another? (split)

Recommended Posts

(Split by mod from here)

I love Affinity Designer, but coming from illustrator this feature really suck. I have multiple layers, select them all and at last i mark the layer to substract from. In AD it doesnt work as i expect so damn often and i still don't know how to get the behavoir i want. Tried to change the layer order.. and things, but it feels like a random behavoir to me. Copied it to illustrator .. 3 clicks - done. Really frustrating -_-

Example attached, this happens even if i try to substract every single letter.
