I have a new layer containing a drawn rectangle shape in Normal mode. I have added a 3 pixel wide stroke line. I have poured a color into said shape. The color shows in the Layers Thumbnail but not in the actual image. PLUS my layer Opacity is at 100%. What do I need to change to see the color filled rectangle on my image? I can't find any information on this problem at all.
