Affinity Photo - Convert a mask to pixel layer

You can't Rasterize a mask 'layer'.  If you could, it wouldn't be a mask layer any more, just a pixel layer with black and white shapes on it. You can merge layers with masks, which effectively rasterizes the mask without altering its effect.

Is there a way to convert a Mask layer to a Pixel layer with AP on iPad ? I’m looking for something like : Rasterize Mask to Pixel or something alike

What are you actually trying to accomplish, if you can do that?

I would reuse the mask to serve as a clipping layer.

I’m not very familiar with AP/PS. Maybe what I’m trying to accomplish is possible without relying on this technique ?

I know that it would become a pixel layer and not a mask layer anymore. But it would be useful. I think I’m not the only one asking for this feature (I searched the forum). The only answer I found was for AP on desktop and I can’t find a way to reproduce this on AP iPad.

Select the Alpha Channel, right click and select Convert to greyscale image (or something like that).
