Vector mask does not refresh automatically


Recommended Posts

Affinity Photo 1.8.163

macOS 10.15

If I create a vector mask using a curve and then adjust the curve with the Node tool, the masked area of the image doesn't refresh until I zoom in and out. 

Unmasking and re-masking (by dragging the curve in the Layers panel) also fixes the view but is even more cumbersome.

Hi @Chris B

Sorry for the delayed reply, only just seen your post. 

I'm afraid I'm still seeing the same behaviour with build .166

It also affects vector masks created with shape tools (eg a rectangle). Below I've masked with a rectangle, I move the rectangle around and I have to zoom in and out to update the mask. I then convert the rectangle to a curve, modify the shape with the Node tool and then move the curve around. Again I have to zoom in and out:

I now see this happening in 166 on Mac 10.14.6 but I don't see it if I have the shape or curve as a mask in/under the Background Layer.

Yes, that way works fine for me as well.
