Alpha channel lock

Post#1 by RJKD » 31 Jan 2017, 16:13


I notice on older versions of Gimp the alpha lock used to have a tick check box, this isn't the case with my 2.8, is there any way of knowing if I've locked or unlocked. (Heaven knows, please don't say there is a little box around the little square - I'm using a 32 inch monitor and high prescription spectacles!!!) :hammer_head: Can anyone help please?

yep, it looks like just a light blue shade square that highlights the whole icon.
But because the icon is already most of the box, it's really..Really, really hard to see.

Are you using a Mac Tin? I've used a magnifying glass to look more closely and what happens on my box is when checked I get a tiny serrated edge around it.

I used windows(10).
yeah like a blue edge is all i see i have to click away from it like the brush icon next to it so that the dotted focus square goes away to see it. It's still really hard to see.
