With many of the tools in Affinity Photo, the assistant will automatically switch the layer to rasterized for the tool to work. Could this be done for the inpainting tool? Twice now I've sat there thinking, why doesn't this work? I'll switch to the clone brush and the assistant changes the layer to rasterized and then the inpainting tool works. I've now learned my lesson, but others might not be so quick to catch on that the layer needs to be converted first.

This has been discussed in (at least!) two or three previous threads. As it stands, sometimes the Assistant automatically adds a new pixel layer or rasterizes the current layer, sometimes you get a warning that the layer needs to be rasterized, and sometimes (as in the case of the Inpainting Brush Tool) nothing happens at all. The latter should never happen, but I suspect that not all users would appreciate automatic creation of a pixel layer, so I guess the obvious answer would be a Preferences setting for this.

Ah! Didn't realize it had been discussed before. Yes, it would be good for the default behavior not to be "nothing".

 

Surely "nothing" is precisely the behaviour that you don't want!

It seems to me that "automatic" in all cases would be the most helpful default, since it would allow functions such as inpainting to work straight away. However, although it could easily be undone if required, some users might find it annoying, which is why I suggested that the three options ("Automatic", "Warn", "Do nothing") should be available under Preferences.

it would be great that it do nothing just pop out a bubble  with comment "if you want to in paint do you want to rasterize?" then you can chose yes no.

HAHA ... mine is masks. I make a mask then paint and paint and nothing happens. I check the mask and some other things before realizing that I did not select the brush.

One would think that hitting "B" would not be so difficult even after spilling a drink into my keyboard yesterday 

 ... and it will probably happen again today

Yes, the little bubble idea might not be bad. At least it would keep me from thinking that the program is broken.

Agreed. That's what I meant by "Warn". :)
