Think of Personas as different ways of working within your application. If you want to work purely with vector tools you can design in the default Designer Persona; for additional raster textures and pixel brush strokes operations the Pixel Persona is the choice for you. One final Persona, Export Persona, is ideal for exporting specific areas of your design as usable graphics (for web, print, etc.).
When you switch to a different Persona, a unique workspace layout containing the tools and panels used by that Persona is loaded. This may also change the menus available so that everything you need to unleash your creativity is at your fingertips.
To switch to a different Persona:
- On the Toolbar, click the button for the Persona that you want to use.
- From the Affinity Designer menu, choose a Persona you wish to switch to.
- In the File menu, select a Persona from the Personas option.
