According to this post on reddit (admittedly a couple of years ago), it should be possible to add local selections to a group, rather than just a single layer.
In practice, this doesn’t work. I can’t even begin to explain why because the behavior is so erratic, but suffice it to say that while it works fine when adding local selections to a single layer, it does not work as intended when added to a group, (the objective being able to use the local selection in conjunction with any layer in the group, if that wasn’t obvious).
Is this a bug, or was the functionality removed? I’m using 4.4.8 but this was also the case on 4.4.5.
Thank you for reading!
