What's New In This Version:
Pixelmator Pro 1.6.2 adds the ability to replace image layers while preserving nondestructive edits, brings a number of handy keyboard shortcuts, and includes a few other improvements and fixes.

• The new Replace Image feature adds a way to replace image layers while preserving all their layer styles, color adjustments, effects, and other nondestructive features.
• Quickly activate Replace Image using the Shift-Command-R keyboard shortcut.
• You can now create a mask from an image using the Choose Mask command in the Format menu.
• Format > Invert Colors will now invert the colors of image layers and masks without applying the nondestructive Invert adjustment.
• The Command-I keyboard shortcut has been reassigned from the Invert adjustment to the new Invert command.
• The Shift-Command-V keyboard shortcut will now insert a new layer from the Finder.
• The Option-Command-G keyboard shortcut will now create and release clipping masks.
• The Option-Command-comma (,) keyboard shortcut will now toggle layer visibility.
• Option-clicking Add Mask in the Layers sidebar shortcut menu will now add a mask that reveals all the contents of the masked layer instead of hiding everything.
• If you Option-click Add Mask with an active selection, the selected area will be hidden by the mask rather then everything outside the mask.
• Scroll bars will now always be visible when “Show scroll bars” is set to Always in System Preferences.
• The Motion blur effect will now use degrees (from 180º to -180º) as the unit instead of a percentage based on radians.
• The largest icons were missing from the Pixelmator Pro app icon set. Fixed.
• Certain layers would not appear after hiding and showing their parent group layers. Fixed.
• Opening very large documents would occasionally cause Pixelmator Pro to stop responding. Fixed.
• Control-clicking the layer mask in the Layers sidebar would not make the shortcut menu appear. Fixed.
• Rotating certain low-resolution images by 90 degrees would introduce blurring. Fixed.
• Drag and dropping images was not working correctly on Mac computers with Intel Iris graphics processors running macOS 10.15. Fixed.
• Solid white or solid black layer masks would not be preserved when exporting to PSD. Fixed.
• The color of text layers would shift slightly when exporting to PSD. Fixed.
