Bug ID: 393109
Summary: Transparency mask is merged when a layer is merged
with parent layer
Platform: MS Windows
OS: MS Windows
Component: Layer Stack
Target Milestone: ---
The title is too terse to be clear...
I have a layer with a transparency mask (TM) on it, so part of it is hidden.
I paste some cut image in the layer, actually making a layer above it.
(BTW, it would be nice to be able to paste & merge in one command, but that's a
feature request for later.)
So I have to do Merge with Layer Below (ie. good ol' Ctrl+E) to integrate this
image into the layer. So far, so good... except the transparency mask is gone!
The hidden parts are gone forever (unless I notice this and undo, but the first
times, I didn't notice so it was too late).
Even locking the TM layer won't save it.
Fortunately, there is a workaround: use the arrows to move the TM to another
layer, do the merge, move the TM back to the original layer.
Not very practical.
I suppose it is an unnoticed bug, or a feature that not everybody wants... :-)
so I report it.
