Layer Effects not closing

Recommended Posts

1. Open a layer "Layer Effects" window

2. Close the image, notice the window stays open but disabled.

3. Open an image, the window is enabled, leaves changes in history, but on no layer (since non is selected).

Hey TEcHNOpls,

I can't repo this. Is there something missing from the recipe or am I being daft? 

When I reopen an image, there's no History and the Layer Effects dialog has reset O.o

Ye, the history is empty, but if you change anything in the window it will show up in history, but no layer is affected.

When I open a an image file, the background layer is automatically selected. So at that point, if I adjust the Effects dialog that remained open from the prior image, it affects the selected layer.

Are you de-selecting that background layer before adjusting the Effects dialog? You didn't mention that as part of your recipe.

But if I do that (de-selecting the background layer) then it's impossible to adjust the Effects dialog. It's still there, but inactive until a layer is selected.

I was not checking in one layer document.

It's not selecting anything. But I found even more behavior suggesting it's an error.You can see I cna chage the sliders etc, but not enable the checkmarks.

When I do this with a document with more layers/filters etc. the app is auto-selecting the last layer I added. In this case, a Clarity Live Filter. If I delete that and repeat, it goes back to selecting the Background.

I'm really not sure what's going on your end but it might be file specific or the way you've built the file.
