Hi,

I have two layers. Upper most with text is locked.

Bottom layer is an image I have applied a transparency/gradient mask for the raster image. Now, seems my layers palette is stuck in a mode called 'Layers (Opacity Mask)'.

Not seen this before, but this is CS6. How do I get out to the main, root level of the layers palette?

thanks!

In the Transparancy Panel, select the left icon to edit the art. You have selected the right icon (to edit the Transparancy mask) regards, Ton

It's not obvious what steps you are supposed to take, if you happen to close the transparency window while in this mode you might as well reinstall the program.

Nunca se me ocurrió volver a pinchar el icono de la izquierda. También perdí mucho tiempo tratando de salir del modo máscara de opacidad hasta que tuve que recurrir a google. Gracias.

Likewise. I looked methodically at every line item in every pull down menu and palette. Finally, I came and drank deep the wisdom that is ever-flowing from this font of knowledge, the Adobe Support Community, and was refreshed to return once again to the task at hand.
