    Adjustment layer blend mode only works when an effect is active

    Horshack Level 4

      I noticed this behavior and was wondering if it was by design or a bug. If I add an adjustment layer and change its blending mode, the blending mode is not visibly applied to the layers beneath. However, if I then add any effect to the adjustment layer the blending mode starts working. It can be any effect, even one whose parameters have no modifications to the adjustment layer, such as a hue/saturation effect dialed to the default master hue of zero. If I then disable the effect by clicking the Fx column on the layer then the adjustment layer reverts back to not honoring the blending mode.

       

      Btw if I repeat this same procedure on Photoshop the blending mode is applied/visible.
