    Really looking forward to experimenting. Are there any tutorial on Layers? I’m sure I have seen something but can’t find it.

    So far all my edit trials are looking good. I have to still use my old Lightroom 6 for tethering but everything else is done in On1. I will do some panorama and perfect brush work today to check it out.

    I have enjoyed playing with the latest Beta. There seem to be less bugs, than there were in Photo Raw 2017. Which is excellent news.
    Adam is right about panorama, but the new message warning that panorama has not yet been fixed, suggests that it will be fixed in the near future.
    Only serious problem that I have noticed, is that all of the extra code is slowing things down a bit. Raw 2018 is still fast, when compared to other programmes, but not as fast as Raw 2017. However, if I was asked to trade off a little speed, against better stability and more features. Then, I’ll happily take the latter.
