Colour Dodge Blend Mode not working on Text Layers

Recommended Posts

I applied the Colour Dodge Blend Mode to a black logo (png) on top of a dark blue rectangle and it makes the logo a nice light blue colour.  However, when I apply the exact same Colour Dodge Blend Mode to Black Text (also tried Rasterising it first), it is no longer visible at all.

Why am I getting different results?  Do Text Layers react differently to Blend Modes and if so, why does Rasterising it not make any difference?

Applying a Colour Dodge to a black anything on a dark blue background would hide the black logo not turn it pale blue, It would if it was a shade of grey?

Can you link to a screenshot of affinity showing the Layers Panel and the blend mode of the black logo?
