Feature Request: "Current Layer & Below" as Default for Inpainting and Patch tools


Recommended Posts

 

I always use the Inpaining and Patch tools with the "Current Layer & Below" layer setting. I must always set this manually from "Current Layer" which is the default. I could not find an option to change this.

It'd be great if there was the possibility to configure this.

Yes. Maybe, if you have an empty pixel layer active (above another layer) and you select the Inpainting tool, then automatically use "Current Layer & Below".

It is surely a prime candidate to be handled by the Assistant. It seems so obvious that I have often wondered – usually when I forget to change the setting yet again – why it was not included.

With ten posts to your name you’re no longer a ‘new’ member, so you may well see an ‘Edit’ link on the menu that appears when you click on the ellipsis (‘...’) at the top right of each of your posts. If so, edit your original post to amend the thread title.

Assuming you're using a desktop web browser, a long-click on the topic title will let you edit it.

Done, thank you. I was on a tablet before. 🙂

‘Inpainting’ is still missing its ‘t’. ;)

I had thought that long-pressing on iPad didn’t work for this, because it highlights the word that you press on, but I’ve discovered that long-pressing a second time takes you into ‘Edit’ mode.

I just did a quick test and the clone brush's setting appears to be fully persistent between application sessions, even when a subsequent image has only a background layer (not that it would matter in that case).

Both of these tools' sampling options could and should be managed intelligently by an assistant preference.
