I downloaded the latest version of affinity photo and since then the layer panel, where you see different layers has shrunk to such a small size that only one layer palette is visible while working( referring to area under opacity and overlay where different layers are visible). I tried to expand it with a cursor by dragging downwards but no luck. The area under navigator, history, channels, info  has extended upwards all the way and has become almost double in size.

 

Any ideas how to fix it to normal working pattern.

Go to View > Studio > Layers and uncheck the layers panel, then go back and check it.

Another option is to drag the layers panel off the right panel collection, so just left click on the Layers panel name, hold and drag into the work space to separate the layers panel from the panel collection.

You can place the layers panel back and as long as you are holding the left button down, moving the layers panel will show blue highlighters to indictae where the panel will be placed. You will also find if you drag the panel over a group of panels it will move the tabs for the other panels and you can place the layers panel within a group.

Tried the above options but didn't worked out.

Its not only the layers panel but the whole area under adjustments, layers, effects, styles, stock and then overlay and opacity. That area is reduced to a small size so that when I am working on layers, the width of the area is such that only one layer is visible at a time.

The area under navigator, history, channels, info  has extended upwards all the way and has become almost double in size reducing the box showing layers info.

 View > Studio > Reset Studio should put things back to their default positions


If the above does not work please upload a screenshot of what you are seeing


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be concerned about.
