What am I doing wrong?

I have spend HOURS trying to figure out, why the 'Property panel' doesn't appear the same, as in all the tutorials that I have seen regarding the subject 'select and mask' tool?

The panel that I get, keeps indicating that 'No mask has been selected' and hence I'm not able to choose the 'onion skin' in View Mode. Either I'm not able to work with the edges that I would like to refine.

What am I doing wrong and can someone please help me....?

I would really appreciate if anyone could help me to make the correct dialogue box/property panel appear (View mode).

I have attached a picture (in my language version) that shows the 'Property panel' that appears on my screen.

Thank you :)

You don't get an 'active' Properties panel, (like the one you posted), until the layer has a mask.

Using 'Select and Mask' opens its own 'properties' window, in which is the 'Onion Skin' option...its not in the properties panel.

Create a marquee with a valid layer selected and the click the 'Select and Mask' button at the top of the Ui in the menu bar. The image is opened in a completely independent window where you have all the options to refine the mask.

Once you click OK at the bottom of that window you'll be taken back to the main UI where the 'Properties' panel will then become active for the new mask.

Sometimes the properties panel, (like the one you posted), doesn't update so you may need to close the tab and reopen it.

Thank you so much MrToM - you saved my day.

Found out that if you go to Window/workspace/update 'select and mask' that would help too.

Will send a lot of good vibes and karma your way
