Layer Disappeared
on: January 25, 2018, 09:06:08 AM
iPad version 1.0.10

Please see attached screenshot.

My steps:
4 equal squares.
Wanted to swap top and bottom (to see how pattern aligned).
Moved topleft 4 part down (to still have a grip on it after moving 5 to top)
Moved 5 to top.
Moved 4 to bottom. Layer thumbnail in Palette showed it still at part-way down.
Closed palette, switched and moved other layers: no change to thumbnail.
Closed file.
Re-opened to find thumbnail still at half-way,  but layer content (4) had disappeared. Not hidden under any other layers.
Nothing restored it. Thumbnail remains even after closing, re-opening file.

Can't say if/when AutoSave happened, but at no time had I deleted the Layer 4 anyway.

(Have noticed before Palette thumbnail does not update, but never known layer to disappear).

Hope this of use.

~~~

ALSO (while on the subject) ...
2 Suggestions for Layers...

...Ability to select (Layers Palette) more than one Layer - other than having to make Group, individually move into Group (and then maybe later unGroup).
...In Select Menu, a command to 'Select Layer'  (Active Layer).

I cannot reproduce that.
Could you record the screen and send me a video to this thread or to our email: info@luckyclan.com

I've tried over past few days to reproduce the disappearing layer. But have not seen it happen again.

The issue of Layer Thumbs not refreshing is always there. e.g Moving a Layer does not (always) get updated in the thumb.

Sometimes it will update after a while in the same session; sometimes only when file or App is re-opened; sometimes never (as in the Test ArtStudio file I send here).

I opened this file in Desktop version and found same non-updating.
