[Fixed] Mask-Layer-Icons not updating

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Maybe I am doing it wrong, but it seems that in APhoto 1.7.0.293 the Preview-Icon of Mask-Layers is not being updated:

kind regards

Hello Fritz,
your screenshot shows a selection, this is not a mask yet.
Click on the mask icon in the Layers-Panel and a mask will be created.

Hi Gnobelix,

Thanks for your answer.
Please check the following screenshot:

- launched APhoto 1.6.5.
- created an empty pixel-Layer (red)
- added an adjustment-Layer (HSL) with complete de-saturation
- painted a spiral onto this HSL-Layer (since I have learned from James´ Videos, that in Affinity, every Adjustment-Layer automatically has it´s own Mask...)
- saved the File
- opened the file with the most recent Beta.

Please compare the Layer-Thumbnails.

What am I doing wrong?

kind regards
Fritz

Hello Fritz,

Sorry, I misunderstood something, now I know what you mean.
When drawing with the brush on the adjustment layer, becomes the masks icon here too not updated.
Whether it's a bug, I do not know.
But with a left click and pressed ALT key the mask becomes visible.
Maybe this helps.

Cheers
