This update brings a number of fixes and improvements to keep Pixelmator running smoothly.
- The grid, persistent guides, Quick Selection tool overlay, and selection outlines would be visible above the Rulers. Fixed.
- It was not possible to resize the Import window when it should have been, and it was possible to resize the About and Preferences windows when it shouldna€?t have been. Fixed.
- Skewing, distorting, or changing the perspective of a layer group with differently sized layers would work incorrectly. Fixed.
- After changing the ruler origin, the temporary indicator lines would not be cleared from the screen until something was clicked. Fixed.
- Merging a layer group with a clipping mask inside it would turn the merged group into a clipping mask. Fixed.
- Opening Photoshop documents with inner or outer glow layer styles would sometimes cause Pixelmator to quit unexpectedly. Fixed.
