Hi all! New to Krita, but love it so far (donated, even). I am switching from GIMP because, rather amazingly, the current version forces a color space choice onto layer masks that creates pronounced banding at low levels. Ruins anything you want to do that calls for a subtle transparency gradient. Krita, thankfully, doen’t have that problem.
After I create a transparency mask and select it in the Layers docker, I can edit it by painting, drawing, whatever. But, I can’t actually see the mask. I see the visible layers and the effect of whatever I do to the mask, but not the mask itself. In GIMP, I could check “Show Mask” in a pop-up menu, and the selected mask would appear as a grayscale image.
Is there a way to make a transparency mask visible in Krita?
