I don't understand. In Krita, if I make a new project and work on it then want to clear a layer, I simply hit delete once and it's done. But all my existing projects I hit delete on, either only work for certain layers and things or it doesn't do anything at all.

Like text wasn't clearing from the layer. I had to hand-select and delete it.

What is going on and how do I get it to clear the layer entirely on button press?

Apparently just select the layer and hit delete do not work on vector layers. The less annoying thing to do is to use select shapes tool to draw a selection area over everything and hit delete.
