Hi folks. Reporting a couple of bugs.

When Exporting a Pixelmator Pro file as a Photoshop (PSD) document:

1. Layers in Pixelmator Pro that have an associated mask—when exported, the mask is not preserved but flattened to the layer.
2. Layers that are hidden in Pixelmator Pro, when exported, the hidden layer is included in the exported file but the content is empty.

Pixelmator Pro 1.3.2
macOS X 10.14.3
iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2014) with an insane amount of memory.

Hey Rob, would you be able to email us about this at, sharing the problematic PXD files as well, if possible?

Hi Andrius. The source pxd file clocks in at 79.4MB. It generates a (problematic) psd file that's 42MB. Those files are too large to e-mail.

I then resized the original pxd file to 25%. It still comes in at a hefty 70.2MB. The psd file created from it is a much more reasonable 2.6MB. The export bugs described are still present in this psd file.

I'm glad to get these to you if you have an option other than e-mailing.

Oh my bad, I forgot to mention that you can upload them to, then send us the links you get after uploading so that we could download those files!
