Merging selected layers + Inpainting brush tool

Recommended Posts

I have an image masked with a curve. Next I add a new pixel layer, pick the Inpainting Brush Tool, select current layer and below. I "remove" some parts and now want to merge the new pixel layer with the image masked with a curve. In the Layer panel I select both layers. From the menu Layer I select Merge Selected and the result is, that only the layer with the inpainting having the curve inside is visible, the rest of the image is missing. What is my fault?

When I disable the curve I get both layers combined. Same behaviour is with Merge Down.

It would help to have a sample .afphoto file that demonstrates the problem. Or, at least, a screenshot showing the image and the Layers panel. (But having a .afphoto file would be better :) )

If you can't share the real file, can you create a sample that you can share? If not, someone on the Serif staff can provide a private upload link, when they notice this topic (which might better have been posted in Affinity on Desktop Questions (Mac and Windows), by the way).
