Face Selection Masking lines shows up when I don't select vertices?

Using texture paint, when I select “Face Selection Masking” the dotted lines show up for vertices I haven’t selected? This is opposite to what should happen. I’m sure this is something simple I’m missing.

So this is my cube with unselected vertices.

I go over to texture paint and I can see the vertices in Face Selection Masking on?

Yes sorry, i’ve edited the original question.


I’m not sure what you’re asking, but the dotted lines should show anyway even when you
don’t select the faces. Also in that second photo you provided, there isn’t any selected
vertices (they’re not on).

What happens when you select the faces is they light up. Either way, they are still dotted.
