Library View

The Library view is used to store elements such as animation, drawings, backgrounds and puppets to reuse in different projects. You can also use the Library view to create and store your symbols.

To reuse an element from another project, you must create a template out of your drawings. A template is a mini scene that you import in your other project. A template has no link to the original scene. When you create a template, the full content of your selection is copied in the template.

You also have the possibility to create symbols. These can be used as drawing containers when you are creating puppets so that you can store different mouth shapes or hands to use while animating. Note that drawing layers already have this capability without being a symbol. You can also use symbols when you are building props, such as a skateboard whose wheel you want to reuse for the four skateboard wheels.
