Assistant Manager

The Assistant Manager manages alert messages that pop up on your screen that affect layer behavior.

When you perform pixel painting (or erasing) on vector layers, or when applying adjustments to selections, alert messages inform you that Affinity Designer has performed an action that you need to be aware of. This is as a result of the last operation you performed. Assistant Manager cannot only decide the default type of action to take, but switch alerts on or off once you've decided on your chosen default action. Several types of operation can lead to different actions.

To change Assistant Manager settings:
  1. From the View menu, click Assistant Manager.
  2. Select options from the relevant option's pop-up menu.
To switch off alerts or the Assistant Manager completely:
  1. From the View menu, click Assistant Manager.
  2. Uncheck Alert when assistant takes an action or Enable assistant, respectively.
