Outline on masked object causes instant fill

Recommended Posts



I assume this is a bug (or a quite strange feature). How to reproduce:

  1. Create object with a mask
  2. Add Outline effect to the layer
  3. Bug: Masked area is immediately filled in - What I expected instead is that the masked area will receive the same outline as the rest of the image


Quick demonstration:



Kind regards


EDIT: This seems to happen for any object that has an "inside" space (not only masked one), this is really strange behaviour.

EDIT2: It's not possible to achieve a replacement effect with Outer glow either, because the result is following: http://recordit.co/9XFAc3rGWP

Hi Sean,


Thank you for the reply. I have continued with the file, eventually figuring out a workaround, so I don't have the file in the original state anymore. And when I try to reproduce the issue on a new file I indeed get the correct behaviour as you say, I am not sure where the original issue came from... If I ever encounter it in the future I will make sure to save the file.


Sorry to bother you.
