New empty layer is dark
on: April 13, 2021, 04:20:34 AM
Hello - All new empty layers which should be transparent are suddenly dark, with the checkerboard pattern and all, but dark. Deleted areas in a painting are also dark. What gives? How can I get my clear layers back?

It is just a thumbnail. Checker background says the area is transparent.
If you like light checkers you can switch to light UI in Preferences > Interface

In new minor update we will add option to use light checkers also in dark (default) mode.

That’s good to hear, was about to make the same issue post. Having multiple line art or sketch layers become indistinguishable from each other on dark theme thumbnails.

This change is weird and unnecessary. When I sketch with black/dark color , I can't recognise which layer is which, change or additional feature to change this in dark mode, would be great. Light mode is not comfortable for everyone.
