I sometimes have a selection and forgot to add a layer mask first. But when I add a mask when something is selected it automaticly applies to the selection. I don’t always want that. So what I do now is deselect, add the mask then reselect. But isn’t there a shortcut like holding some key when adding the mask without applying it to the selection? That would save the ‘trouble’ of ‘deselecting/reselecting’.
