[AP] Improvements to disabling/enabling masks

Recommended Posts

1st request:


If you want to temporarily disable a mask you have to Shift click on the mask thumbnail. So far so good... until you start shift click it a bit too fast and then the view zooms out.


Try this:


1. Zoom the document to a value different than 100%

2. Add a mask to a pixel layer

3. Start shift clicking the mask thumbnail at a speed of 1 click per second


Everything is fine so far


4. Start steadily increasing the speed of your shift clicking


The view will zoom out to fit the screen.


Can you please make it so it doesn't do this zooming when enabling/disabling masks?


This ties in to the

2nd request:


Can you please make it so that you can enable and disable masks no matter what speed you shift click them with? At the moment the mask won't enable/disable if you shift click them faster than 1 click per second. In Photoshop you can enable/disable masks as fast as you can press the mouse button.


Can you make the enable/disable mask function irrelevant to the clicking speed?


Thanks for considering these! :)
