Recommended Posts

action is --> ...,    result is <--  ...      comment is | ...

 

--> add levels layer using ctrl L  <-- dialogue window and levels layer appear | ok

--> do some levels manipulation, i.e. reduce white limit   |  works

--> klick on background layer  <-- levels dialogue window disappears  | ok so far

--> klick on levels layer again <-- nothin happens   |  dialogue window should reappear here

--> klick on "adjustment" tab, then on "levels" tool <-- levels dialogue reappears, but with changes undone  |  would expect previous changes to be recalled

--> add second levels layer via ctrl L  |   ok so far

--> do some manipulations there  |  works

--> klick on basis layer   <-- levels dialogue window disappears   |  we had that

--> klick on first levels layer  <-- nothing happens   |  ok that doesnt work, we know that

--> klick on "adjustment" tab, then on "levels" tool  <-- dialogue for first levels layer reappears, settings deleted as before  |  nothing new

--> klick on second levels layer  <-- dialogue for second levels layer appears, setting are those done before  |   aha! with this detour the settings can be accessed!!

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums.

That is all working as I would expect.

To reopen the existing adjustment, double-click on the adjustment layer's thumbnail in the Layers panel.  That is, here: image.png.b761cd897902852d9d8deb03c9c19960.png

or here: image.png.7feeafb7822913886cf5c41a57285e2e.png depending on where the layer is placed.

If you click on the Adjustment Layer icon again, and choose Levels, or use Ctrl+L, you are adding a second adjustment layer with default settings.

Thx for the quick and correct answer. Looks as if I single and double clicked everywhere on the layer rectangle except on the area you mentioned. Sorry for the inconvenience! Going to work my way through the help now.
