Description

I run Darktable version 2.6.0 under Manjaro KDE. The Darktable documentation on masks available at

https://www.darktable.org/usermanual/en/drawn_mask.html

states: "The size of the complete shape can be modified by scrolling – analogous to the circle shape. The same holds true for the width of the border, i.e. the area with a gradual opacity decay, which can be changed by scrolling when it is highlighted or by shift+scroll from anywhere within the shape."

With version 2.6.0 of DT only the second method works (i.e., shift+scroll) with drawn masks. That is, "scrolling when it [the border] is highlighted" does not seem to work. It also expands or shrinks the mask itself.

True. So either the manual is wrong or the program does not behave as expected.

In all versions prior to 2.6.0 the first method worked just fine. In version 2.6.0 only the second method works.

Right, this is a change in behavior. The area of the gradual opacity decay is quite difficult to get highlighted in many cases and almost impossible when many shapes are close to each others. And in many cases this was just changing the size of another mask. So now only the shift-scroll is working. The doc should be updated.
