7.29. Edit Layer Mask

The Edit Layer Mask command is a toggle that switches from editing the layer, to editing the layer mask (if present) and vice versa. When the layer mask is in editing mode, a white border is shown around the mask in the Layers Dialog.

Note that editing a layer mask is separate from showing the mask. You can make the layer mask visible to make it easier to see what you are changing on the mask.
