[Gimp-user] layer mask apply in gimp 2.9.8


I have been looking at several tutorials to apply a gradient layer
mask to an image to make it fade to black/background.
On Gimp 2.8.* I can easily reproduce this. However, using the Gimp
2.9.8, when I click on apply layer mask, the fade/gradient disappears.
Can anyone tell me this is a bug or has this technique to be applied
differently in the new version of Gimp ?


Yeah, do not use 'apply layer mask' at least not straight away. Using GEGL and
on canvas display, there are several operations that need a 'enter' to fix them.

Guessing something like this, black background, white **active** layer mask,
white-to-black radial gradient. Drawn in the canvas looks like this. Layer mask
will remain blank

When satisfied hit the enter key to confirm the operation, that fixes the
gradient into the layer mask.
