Folks: how do I clip a copied fill layer to a new layer? Screen shot attached.

 

Here's the story: I duplicated a fill layer because I wanted to apply the same color to another layer. When I duplicated the layers, the new fill layer is unable to be clipped to the layer below it, the button is grayed out. Probably operator error, but I want to learn. How do I clip the copied fill layer to the new layer below it?  

 

Mac OS 13.6.1, PS 25.1.0

Hi @dDembicki click on the layer - not the layer mask.

when I do that, the whole properties panel is grayed out, "no mask selected".  Obviously I'm missing some step...

BUT, clicking around... under the layer menu, there's a Create Clipping Mask option, and that worked to clip it to the previous layer. With the layer selected, not the mask. Hope this helps the next person!

@dDembicki correct- you can't clip when the mask is selected. You can also hold the Opt key when hovering between the two layers to apply the clipping mask.
