- In the Camera View or Drawing View toolbar, use the Onion Skin Add One Previous Drawing , Onion Skin Reduce One Previous Drawing , Onion Skin Reduce One Next Drawing and Onion Skin Add One Next Drawing buttons to adjust the span of the onion skin frame by frame.
- In the Onion Skin toolbar, enable the Enable Onion Skin in Other Elements option.
- The current layer is displayed by default in shades of green and red.
- Drawings in timeline layers above the current layer are displayed by default in shades of blue.
