I'm working on an oil painting in fresco and want to paint within the same layer, however, something happened and now, whenever i try to paint - as soon as my pen touches the surface - a new layer is created for what I'm painting - which i DON'T want as that makes it impossible to blend the new paint with the paint on the layer I actually want to paint on. How can I solve this?

Fresco will separate Vector Brush layers from Pixel and Live Brush layers.

If you're not switching from Oil to Vector though this should definitely not be happening unless you've grouped your layers. In which case unless you're inside the group then Fresco does add a new layer.

Which device are you using? Was there an update recently? Do you recall editing any settings between when it worked as expected and when it started to add layers on its own?

Hi Sjaani,

Thank you so much for your kind reply and I apologize for the late answer! Your first sentence solved the problem for me, I had accidentally gone from pixel to vector!
