I am working with digital watercolors, and have created multiple layers to add detail to my painting. When I use the eraser on a selected layer, it also erases from the layers below. Even when I lock the lower layers, they are still being erased. Am I missing a setting somewhere? This didn't happen in previous versions of the software.
Just another thought... at the top of your layers palette is "Preserve Transparency" selected?
If it IS then anything you erase will leave a white area in the layer where the paint had been, masking out the layers behind it.
Make the current layer invisible to see if the other layers still exist behind it.....
I did check, but Preserve Transparency was turned off. :(
