Can't get vertex painting (with textures) to work?

Hello, I followed these tutorials on how to paint with vertex paint to paint textures using the alpha channel

, and I** attempted holding down shift + the left mouse button to paint**, but nothing shows up. **Vertex painting with color works well as it should **, but not with textures. How can I get this to work? If it helps at all I’m using version 4.20 and the forward rendering.


Did you select your texture node in your material and enable the “is texture painting” checkbox?
