strange behavior of groups in cs6. bug?

Apr 9, 2013 4:30 AM

1. create few layers, adjustment layers, layers in color blend mode, etc.

2. create a group from this layers (Ctrl-G).

3. then create any layer above the group (empty layer, or any adj.layer with no correction)

4. group this layer with earlier created group (Ctrl-Alt-G).

 

result:

agjustment layers in group not work at all, and blending mode of other layer changes to strange (not Normal mode).

    Interesting.

    I expected the Group to assume one Blend Mode maybe, but the issue is seemingly not that simple.

    That doesn't make sense using the exact wording as written.  What you're doing with Control-Alt-G is to create a clipping mask.  Is this your intent?

     

    When I do exactly what's described I don't seem to be able to re-create a problem.  Blinking the adjustment layers on and off makes the image change in the expected ways.

    I can't download anything from that tempfile.ru site.  When I click on the filename it just sits there and does nothing.  I suspect the site is trying to do something I don't allow.

    Thanks, I got those files via the File - Save function on the Google site.

     

    Something funky is happening to the masks in bbb.psd, I see it.

     

    I'm not sure what creating a clipping mask with a Levels adjustment layer tied to a group really SHOULD actually do - I haven't quite gotten my head around that yet.  It may be doing what's expected.  Or it may make no sense at all.

     

    But thanks for posting the examples.

     

    Note the change in behavior if you put a layer inside the group that has actual pixels, such as what you have in aaa.psd.
