Hi @Iwewe,

Welcome to the forums. 

Just to confirm. Do you keep CTRL pressed and then press Z? You do not need to press the " + " key for undo. 

You're using Affinity Designer, and by default, you will start in the Vector Persona, which works on Layers. If you wish to use just one layer, you should be using the Pixel Persona. 

Thanks,

Gabe.

Perhaps pedantic, but you hold Ctrl and press z, not Z. The Keyboard Shortcut Preferences show it as Ctrl+Z (perhaps because that's how the key is labeled on a standard keyboard) but it must be lowercase in use, not upper-case.

To all those whose posts have been hidden

This is a support forum where staff will try to answer questions from anyone who need advise how to use the applications. If you want to criticise those who are are not as advanced as you are then your posts are unwelcome. If you are going to be rude that a user's nationality or character or first language or may not be the one they are posting in you risk being banned.

Step away from threads where you have nothing positive to say about the question.

If Serif staff/moderators do not like the tone of the question it is for moderators to deal with. Period
