Xsheet Toolbar

The Xsheet view has its own toolbar where you can find the most common features. This toolbar is displayed by default. Use the commands from this toolbar to preform drawing exposure functions.

You can customize the Xsheet view toolbar: refer to the Toolbar Manager topic for a detailed explanation.
Show Thumbnails: displays a thumbnail image of the drawing that is being referred to by the selected column frame at the top of the column, just under the column header.

 

Show Column List: Expands and collapses the Column List section and the Main Xsheet View so that they can be displayed in the interface, or hidden from view.
Refer to the Column List topic for a detailed example.
Add Column: Adds a column to the Xsheet to the left of the selected column. The Add Column dialog box appears, allowing you to type in the column name and chose the column type from the drop-down menu. If you wish to add multiple columns in one go, click on the Apply button instead of OK.

 

Delete Column: Deletes the selected column. Click on the column header to make your selection.
Clone Column: Provides you with a copy of the selected column that uses the same drawings as the original. If you modify a drawing in the cloned or original column, it is updated in both layers. You can modify the timing of each column independently, one apart from the other, but the drawings remain linked.
Duplicate Column: Provides you with an independent copy of the drawings and their exposure. You can modify anything you want in the duplicated column without affecting the original version.
Add Frame: Brings up the Add Frames dialog. Enter the number of frames that you would like to add to a column either by typing it in, or by using the up and down arrows and then click OK. The number of frames entered will appear under the selected row in every column.

Remove Frame: Removes the selected frames.
Use the Import Images button to open the Import Images dialog box. Use this dialog box to bring in a single image or multiple images. Harmony Xsheet supports JPEG, BMP, PNG, TGA, PSD, IFF, SGI, TVG, OMF, PAL and SCAN.
Create Empty Drawing: The Create Empty Drawing command automatically creates a drawing in the selected cell in the Xsheet view, replacing any drawing that may already be exposed in that cell and the following ones until it meets another drawing.
To create an Empty Drawing:

1. In the Timeline or Xsheet view, select the cell you want to create an empty drawing in.

2. In the Xsheet View toolbar, click on the Create Empty Drawing button.

3. The new drawing will be created in the Xsheet.

 

Duplicate Drawing: If you want to modify a drawing that already exists, but keep the original drawing intact, you can duplicate the drawing and work on the copy. When duplicating a drawing, the selected cell is replaced with the new drawing. The exposure of the original drawing that was on the current cell is removed. The drawing is not deleted.
Delete: Deletes the exposure of the selected frames or columns.
Mark as Key Drawing: Allows you to mark the key drawings by inserting a in that drawing’s cell. This is useful for a traditional animation style work environment when pauses need to be added to the timing of a character’s action. It helps to keep the Xsheet organized while animating.
Mark as Breakdown Drawing: Allows you to mark the breakdown drawings by inserting a in that drawing’s cell.
Mark as In-between Drawing: There is no icon displayed in the cell for the Mark as In-between Drawing option, as it is used to remove the marker of a drawing identified as a key or breakdown drawing and revert it to a normal in-between drawing.
