Cloning a layer or column provides you with a copy of the selected element that uses the same drawings as the original. For example, if you modify a drawing in the cloned or original column, it is updated in both columns.
You can choose whether or not to copy the column timing to the cloned columns.
|•||You can modify the column timing independently from each other, but the drawings remain linked.|
|•||You can copy the columns timing, so drawings and timings remain linked.|
You can clone selected nodes from the Node view in the same way.
This is useful when you want to reuse a hand-drawn animation but have different timings.
- In the Timeline or Xsheet view, select the layer or column to clone.
- Do one of the following:
|‣||From the top menu, select Edit > Clone: Drawings Only to clone only the layer or column drawings.|
|‣||From the Timeline menu, select Layers > Clone Selected Layers: Drawings Only.|
|‣||From the Xsheet menu, select Columns: Clone Selected Columns: Drawings Only.
The new cloned layer or column appears.
