I use the Photos plugin for Pixelmator Pro. Today I noticed that Pixelmator starts making a new layer on a photo every time I use the retouch or clone tool. How do I turn that off?

Are you editing RAW photos by any chance? If you are, deselecting the Sample All Layers option in the Tool Options pane should help.

I didn't think the photos this happened on were RAW images, but you're right, deselecting "Sample All Layers" has seemed to solve the issue. Thank you!!
