Flipping only the active layer

Recommended Posts

The documentation says  that flipping horizontal or vertical only affects the "active layer."  Yet I have tried a dozen times, even hiding the other inactive layers.


With only one layer selected,  a flip horizontal action still flips ALL the layers.  Is this a bug, or is there something I am missing?  I noticed someone wrote a plug in, but a) I haven't installed any yet and didn't want to bother just now, and 2) I have a hard time believing it doesn't work as documented, since that's how every other paint program I've ever used, does.  Thanks in advance.post-147800-0-60925600-1466874250_thumb.

Ah, duh, thanks Pixey.  That's an usual UI setup, but worked fine. 


Maybe the menu selection could say "Flip Horizontally (active layer) on the Layer menu to make it clearer? (and "entire image" on image menu?)

The menus are marked Image and Layers for this reason. In the documentation I've headed each page with the relevant info on the differences between the two. Compare http://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/LayersMenu.html and http://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/ImageMenu.html
