  1. Hi, Using black on a mask should block the layer image completely—but it doesn’t. Attached Image 1 shows a two-layer drawing, one layer for the character and one for the dark background. The dark brushstrokes of the background intentionally overlap the character. A Mask is added to the background layer in order to hide the part where the brushstrokes overlap the character (Image 2). 100% black paint is used. Image 3 shows the result: the brushstrokes almost disappeared, but not quite: there remains a faint ghost of the background on the character (about 5% grey). You don
  2. Hello: I have just noticed that when I try to hide part of an object or painting, Affinity Designer has different results depending on using Eraser or a black brush: As you can see, both are masks. Using brush tool selecting a 100% black, it doesn´t paint 100% and part of the rectangle is still visible. Eraser paint 100% black and hide successfully the part painted in the mask. I think this shouldn´t work like this, right? Thank you very much.
  3. Am I doing some wrong? I have a layer with an SVG image to which I've added a mask. But when I fill the mask with black (0,0,0), the image is still faintly visible. Shouldn't it be 100% erased? Just to prove the mask is working, two images are attached, the first with 100% black mask, the second with a region of the mask painted white to expose the black drawing. I even tried putting an opaque white layer behind it all in case it was some weird transparency artifact. This is on Windows 10, Affinity V
  4. I'm unable to get the layer mask to completely hide the masked artwork, and it still appears as a ghosted image. Am I doing something wrong, or is this a bug? layer-mask.mov
  5. Made a new file, CMYK, copy an image from online, paste, create a mask. The mask shows as Greyscale in the colour tab, but its not fully masking the image, like the brush isn't at 100% (it is). If I change the colour tab to show CMYK, make them all 100%, it masks fine. 1. Am I doing something wrong? 2. Can I have the mask auto to CMYK?
  6. Hello, I'm not entirely sure if this is a bug or if I'm doing something wrong but I can't seem to figure it out. Sorry in case I'm just being a idiot here What is your operating system and version: Windows Version 1909 (Build 18363.720) What happened for you (and what you expected to happen): If I want to cut out a motive, like for example the astronaut in the picture, with a mask layer the background won't go away completely. Instead there is this weird grey there which I have to erase with the eraser tool. I expect to see straight to the layer below
  7. Using a mask layer while working in CMYK does not mask the layer fully.. It leaves a faint visible image when I try to fade away the edges of a layer. The edges are also visible when exporting the image. I was using an image file and applied a mask to it. I also tried to rasterize it but it made no difference. The odd thing is that when I paint over the actual image with black but not the mask, I can cover the image fully. But with this technique I might accidentally paint black color to other areas of the picture as shown in the video. This same problem occurs on the iPad version t
