Shadow / Highlights Live Filter not applying?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 
I am just going over the udemy course Affinity for the iPad and noticed that when adding the shadow and highlights live filter it doesn't apply to my duplicated background layer. However, when applying it without a live filter it works as expected.


I have attached the afphoto file as well with the filter being present, please let me know if there is anything I do wrong or if this is a bug? 


Thank you,

Hi Stefan and Welcome to the Forums,

Thanks for posting the file.  It worked and then stopped for me but deleting the filter and then applying it again seems to have resolved.  Can you try deleting it and then adding it again?

Hi stokerg,

thank you for checking!

I have deleted the filter and added it again. I can see slight changes in the histogram but Not nearly as much as if you would apply the filter directly to the layer without the live filter.

Can you confirm that?
