Re: [Gimp-developer] Problem when two layermasks in one picture

Can't reproduce the problem on my own GIMP 2.8.0 - was I reading the steps correctly?

I tried:
1 - Open a convenient image, add layer mask (full opacity).
2 - Switch to the layer mask and paint away. (works as expected)
3 - Add a new layer (transparent) and paint some strokes
4 - Add a layer mask (full opacity) to the second layer.
5 - Switch to the layer mask and paint away. (still works as expected)

Remember that adding a new layer mask doesn't automatically switch to it for editing - you must do that yourself.  From what you describe, it sounds like you're actually editing the first layer mask (the flower layer) instead of the second (the white stroke layer).

Numbers may not lie, but neither do they tell the whole truth.


I wrote a course for learning to use gimp2.8 with a tutorial of how to use layer masks for out of bounds pictures.
One of my course-members had problems with this tutorial, so I worked it out again to be sure, that the tutorial is correct in all steps.
That was when I found out what the problem was, because I had the same problem with the second layer mask.

The only reason, that I could think of, why you can't reproduce this is that the student and I both work with Linux Ubuntu (me Xubuntu). Do you work on Windows?

Gimp looks strange as well, when I have the gimp-window on top of a Firefox-windows whatching a you-tube video, I can watch the video trough the gimp-window.

I'm not sure of how to proceed now, do I report this to Ubuntu-developer-list?

Thanks in advance
