I'm working with a graphic with a relatively dark background. I've got some white text in the foreground, and I set the blend mode of the text layer to Soft Light to make it semi-transparent. I then duplicated that text layer a few times to create a little extra contrast and help the text stand out, and it looks great.
I'm going to need to do this with several different texts on the image, and I thought I'd group the layers for each piece of text just to keep things organized. However, as soon as I start putting the Soft Light layers into groups, I seem to lose the effect; it's like the modes are merging and the text appears plain white again.
Is there a way to avoid this and keep the layer modes intact while grouping?
This is GIMP 2.10.32 in case that's important.
