    I have looked at a few threads on this and none help me. I think this issue could be different.

    I have an existing terrain block, that is landscaped. On this block I can not use the paint terrain tool, however I can use all the other options like erosion, raise or lower terrain, etc.

    Now when I add another terrain block, everything works, without changing anything, so surely it cant be

    Any ideas?

    Edit: Before I posted this, I found solution, so posting for others that have the same problem:

    It was one of:

    1. Removing all layers, adding them back again
    2. Replacing layer.

    Yes, it was likely the alphamap (that stores where your your textures are painted) was out of sync with the Terrain. We fixed a few bugs along these lines in 2019.3. Your workaround works because by removing and re-adding all of the layers, you effectively create new alpha maps.
