It seems to only work with the Mask Brush texture. If that is deliberate, the overlay slider maybe should be renamed.

It is intentional change and it has been renamed to Stencil Opacity in master/buildbot/2.81

Philipp Oeser (lichtwerk) claimed this task.

Afaict, this affects the Mask/Stencil layer (and that seems to be working fine).

However, I am not quite following the naming here (seems a bit inconsistent), in code we are using use_stencil_layer, the image is the Stencil Image, the Overlay option is displayed as Stencil Opacity, however you enable the whole thing with Mask... seems a bit off. Why not do the following?

That being said, this is not really a bug, (if at all could be a nice improvement for consistency?)
So, will close this as not-a-bug, but maybe there is a reaction from the UI team (could still commit this then...)?
