Using Adobe Illustrator 2022 I made some vector art. In the final step of my process I added some water-color-like texture by adding an image in a layer above the art, setting the trasparency to 30-50%, and changing the blend mode to color burn.
When I did this, the texture was visible on the art board, as well as when I exported the finished work to a .png. I made a template, complete with the image, and used it for several different projects.
Now I have updated to the latest Adobe Illustrator version, 28.1. The same water-color image (presumably with the same settings since the template is the same) now appears incredibly pale, almost invisible. When I add artwork to the layer underneath, the watercolor is not visible.
When I export the image as a png, however, the effect is there.
What can be done to get the old behavior back? The exported result is the same, but since I am not able to see the color-burn while working on the art, it is hard to figure out exactly how strong to make it. The behavior seems surprising given that, again, I am using the same template!
