View Full Version : ps says layer is hidden, but its not

11 November 2005, 10:01 PM
ok, bit of a wierd one and i'm sure its a simple mistake i've made. I'm painting on a layer and a change to a different one. However when i click on it the layer is grey and not the usual blue. Photoshop says its hidden tho its blatantley not as the eye symbol is visible. I've tried clicking on the name, the image preview and the far right but doesn't work. What have i done!

new pain in the butt feature in CS2...its possible for a layer to be visible but not selected which throws up the "hidden" error.

Just make sure you select the layer so its blue.

It often happens after editing channels etc...

I couldn't even select it tho thats the strange thing. I had to open layer properties and click ok to get it to go blue again.

But, i solved it. - had quick mask on, or something and wasn't letting me paint. Pressed q and all is good again.

thanks for the help
