I have a file I made in Affinity Photo on my Mac and it has a layers mask where I drop an image under some text and the image is masked into the text. When I use the same file on the iPad the mask does not work. I drop the image under the text layer and nothing happens. Are layer masks supported on the iPad? What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

On both the desktop version and the iPad version you can mask with a piece of text by dropping the text layer onto another layer’s thumbnail. On the desktop version you can nest another layer by dragging it just below the text layer until you see a horizontal blue rectangle extending below and to the right of the thumbnail; for the same outcome on iPad you still need to drop the dragged layer to the right of the thumbnail, but on top of the text layer instead of just below.
