In weight painting mode switching bones make weights invisible
Closed, ResolvedPublic


System Information
Operating system: Mac OS Catalina 10.15.1
Graphics card: Intel HD 6000

Blender Version
Broken: 2.81 release
Worked: 2.80, 2.82 alpha (1 Dec 2019)

Short description of error
In weight painting mode switching bones make weights invisible. So it's not productive to always switch between modes just to see vertex weights again.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Open Rig3.blend
  2. In object mode select "Rig"(armature)
  3. Then select object "Dayly"
  4. Switch to "weight painting" mode
  5. With "Ctrl + LMB" select other bone
  6. Weights are now invisible...

On macOS graphics drivers are built into the operating system and the only way to get newer drivers is to upgrade macOS as a whole to the latest version.

"Your Mac is up to date -- Mac OS Catalina 10.15.1
Sorry, that's not the case...

Maybe you can add(assign) someone, who use Mac OS Catalina to test?
Would be much grateful :)

@William Reynish (billreynish) : Have you seen this before / can you reproduce this?

Also, may be connected with bug T71500

Works well (no bug) on 2.80 release. So it's not my drivers or OS :)

I can confirm this exact issue.

Mac OS Catalina 10.15.1
Graphics cards:
Radeon Pro 555X 4 GB
Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB

Blender Version: 2.81

3 users on same OS (Mac OS Catalina 10.15) have confirmed that issue.

Can any of the developers reproduce this problem?

Tried new 2.82 alpha 1 December.
Big thanks!

Anyone please -- go to
Install latest 2.82 alpha and test it.

After one more testing we can close this thread :)

I've just checked v 2.82 on a mac, and yeah, bug is gone :) It works like a charm, great job!
