Do you use the layers facility - whenever I use the option "Paste into
new layer" and selecting layers#1 I often get the message..........

"This operation may produce unexpected results
as there is no fully opaque background and the layers
have different blend modes. Click OK to go ahead
with the merger or Cancel to abort the operation"

Does anyone know what this means.

When switching between layers #0 and #1 I often get the

"Photodesk has suffered an unexpected error. OK to continue. Cancel to

Clicking OK or Cancel usually allows me to continue - if my luck is

I never got these error messages with version 3.06 which even now
seems much more reliable than any of the newer releases. 3.08 was a
nightmare; 3.09 seems to be better but this is on an Iyonix not VA.

I've been in touch with CJEMicros by am still waiting for a reply.
