Hi,

I am using Affinity 1.7.3 on a Macbook Air, i7, 8GB RAM and 500GB SSD. I have no other issues other than the one stated below. I did not see this issue listed anywhere on the forum. FOrgive me if it is and I missed it. 

I recently noticed that if I edit an image, in this case a RAW file from a camera (Does not matter which camera file. It happens on multiple RAW files from different model cameras) So, I edit the photo and save it as an .afphoto file. Later , I decide I want to re-open the .afphoto image and edit it again.  When I attempt to add an overlay, it does not "mask" the painted area, nor can I actually adjust anything. It's like the overlay I just created doesn't exist. This is rather frustrating because I sometimes need to revisit an image to adjust differently for a client and I find myself having to re-open the original RAW file and completely re-edit the entire image.

I'm able to reopen a .afphoto file on Windows, go into the Develop Persona, and use the Overlay Brush to create an overlay, and then make adjustments based on the overlay.

If that's what you're doing, I think it should work on Mac, too.

Hi @Solsticeman, I think we have come across the same problem. The overlay in Develop Persona is not useable in each ... trying to think of the term... section of processing. I can use the overlay in basic exposure +/- but not in Curves. That is a bit of a mystery to me but I think there is still work to be done to the engine and Photo was brought to market as is. Hopefully there will be improvements made to include the overlay in everything.

I think there was a bug reported about the overlay being ignored in some areas.

But that didn't sound like what @Solsticeman was reporting. As interpreted the OP, the overlay wasn't even being created after the file was reopened.
