Hi. 

When I select a layer and click on the layer mask icon, it creates a layer mask above and separately from that first layer. I have to manually drag it underneath the layer I meant to mask. Why is not automatically apply it to the layer I've selected? It should work exactly that way, like in photoshop or in any online Affinity tutorial, but not for me.

Hi Massi

 

The Assistant Manager (click on the Tuxedo)

decides if a mask is added as a new layer, or nested as a child layer.

 

 

In Adding mask layer to selection, change it to Add mask as child layer and it will do what you want.

Awesome!! Thanks Toltec, it works now! It was already checked properly but the Assistant itself was disable, maybe came that way by default.

 

thanks again!!!
