Adobe-Flash-like line and fill selection & editing

Recommended Posts

Coming from 20+ years using Adobe Flash as my vector editor, I have difficulty with a few concepts in Affinity Designer that are way more complicated than I was expecting. Maybe I haven't figured this out yet, but:

- why can't I just merge stacking vector layers into a single shape? Not as various objects in a layer, but joined together as one single shape?
- why can't I just select a line-section between two anchorpoints an delete it? (break curve doesn't seem to be the solution for this...)

Also I miss options like expand and contract fills(?)

Maybe this is part of me getting to know Designer, but for me these are basic features for a vector based editor...

Okay, partly sort of found what I was looking for:

- Layer > Geometry > Merge Curves

But this not create seperate editable shapes...
