I’m struggling to understand how to use Transform Masks. I don’t know if the problems I’m having are because I don’t grok the tool or because I’m on Android and it just doesn’t work quite right yet.
In the docs what does the sentence “The transform mode will be the same as the stored transform, regardless of what transform you had selected.” mean?
After a transform mask layer had been added to a layer, I select the transform tool in the tools dock, then open the tools options dock. In there are radio buttons for Position, Rotate, Scale, Shear.
Picking those options don’t have a reliable effect on what happens on the canvas. For example I select Rotate because I want to spin the layer, but when use my pen on the canvas the layer might bend, spin or scale seemingly at random.
There aren’t any visual cues I’ve noticed to indicate which handle is active at the moment. By careful quick taps on the handles I can sometimes appear to make one active or deactive, meaning the next pen action might rotate instead of skew. It’s really hit and miss though.
I’m using Galaxy Tab S6 Lite and Krita 4.4.2-beta.
Am I missing something or is the tool not working yet on Android?
