    Layer Lock Anomaly

    1. Ink pen at 28% Opacity: lay down an area of 100% red for a red tint.
    2. Lock the layer
    3. Set ink pen at 100% opacity and swipe across the tint.
      1. expectation: 100% black mark
      2. result: tinted gray mark
    4. Unlock layer and repeat mark.
    5. Result: 100% black mark as expected.

    The expectation was a 100% black mark in both cases. I presume the locked layer is reading the transparency in the tint and locking out part of the black color.

    The result was not expected. Is this intended behavior or a bug.

    Thanks a bunch,
    Byron

    It's expected behavior, which works the same way in Photoshop. The lock on the layer panel is a Transparency lock. So, if you have an area that is 50% transparent, and the Transparency Lock is then turned on for that layer, that areas transparency will never increase beyond 50%.
    Nothing is easy to the unwilling.

    Interesting. Thanks SOS. Got it. The principle makes sense. I keep forgetting it's not a layer lock, the name is in fact Transparency Lock. I guess this illustrates it pretty well. Thanks again. Nice to see you popping in with your always great answers.
