I’m currently trying to get into the software. I’m playing around with a little project to get the hang of the basics.

One issue: There are lots of masked layers stacked over each other and moving them in the right space is quite fiddly.

What happens all the time is that I want to drag and drop an object...and when I touch the screen, I select another one by accident.

Is there a way to select and object and tell Affinity Photo that I do not want to change the selection by touching the screen?

If there isn’t I’d rather never select antyhing by touch than going on with the current behaviour. I’m using the layer stack for that most of the time anyways. Is that an option?

In the Layer studios menu for each layer is an option to lock, this will prevent the layer from being moved or transformed however editing is still possible. You can also enable Touch for Gestures only in the apps Preferences > Tools, which may help.
