Mac Publisher: why can't I paint on the active pixel layer?

Recommended Posts

Hope the screencapture is self-explanatory. I have a linked Designer file that has a raster layer. I hope to modify with that files pixel layers in Photo..I modified one, added another, but can't paint or draw on it. "Protect Alpha" is on - which should confine painstrokes to inside the "A."

Thank you for any clues!

OK..figured it out. the added pixel layer had nothing in it. "protect alpha" I believe in this case results in protecting the entire layer's alpha.

My solution to adding more color / texture layers to that "A" was to dupe the first one - shown as textured gold, then to paint on that dupe.

hope this helps another..
