"Preserve alpha" for smudge tool


Recommended Posts

Please, add "Preserve alpha" option for smudge and mix brushes. Smudge frequently used to "fix" something (mix brush also) and fixing without alpha-changes really needed sometimes.

P.S.: Or add "keep alpha" options to whole layer... This way all tool will have such functionality

I think if you go into the Channels panel and switch off the editability of the Composite Alpha channel this protects the alpha

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now was our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

Just checked it out, this does work. However, you'll have to toggle it again if you want to work on a new layer or manipulate preexisting layers that don't need to be preserved within the alpha. One of many unpleasant workarounds Affinity seems to be riddled with. Thank you Carl, nonetheless. I appreciate the tip.
