Getting to grips with Affinity Designer by drawing a simple 16x16 pixel favicon, I've ended up with 5 pixel layers. I'm looking for a "flatten" function to squash them back into a single layer but I not having any luck finding one - all the layer combination functions appear to be non-destructive.

There must be a way, mustn't there? Please help!

1) Select each of the layers you want merged in the Layers panel.
2) Choose Layers -> Merge Selected or keyboard shortcut Ctrl-Shift-E.

Okay, so straight from the horses mouth - there is no "flatten" feature. Seems like a fairly basic operation to me!

"There isn't a merge command like in Photoshop, but as a workaround you can create a new empty layer, drag everything else to inside that layer and then go to Layer -> Rasterize..."
