Enabling the Onion Skin in Other Layers

Sometime, you might need to refer to previous and next drawings in other layers than the current one. You can activate the Enable Onion Skin in Other Elements option to see the previous and next drawings of the layers visible in Light Table mode.

This Onion Skin feature only operates in the Drawing view.

To enable the onion skin in other layers:

1. In the top menu, select Window > Toolbars > Onion Skin.

2. In the Tools toolbar, enable the Onion Skin feature.
3. In the Drawing view, enable the Light Table option. This option is not available in the Camera view.
4. In the Timeline view, pull on the blue arrows to extend the number of drawings displayed in the onion skin preview.

5. In the Onion Skin toolbar, enable the Enable Onion Skin in Other Elements option.

By default, layers located on top (in the Timeline view) of the current layer will be displayed as shades of blue.
By default, layers located below (in the Timeline view) of the current layer will be displayed as shades of yellow.
By default, the current layer will be displayed in shades of green and red.
You can change the Onion Skin display default colours in the Preferences panel. See General > Edit Colours.
