Showing and Hiding Columns

The Xsheet view has a Column List section that shows all the columns contained in the exposure sheet. It can be used to hide indivisdual columns.

If you need to see a column after it has been hidden, you can display it directly from the Xsheet view without using the Column List section.

You can also hide an entire column type, such as Drawing or Sound.

When a column is hidden in the Xsheet view, the corresponding layer is disabled in the Timeline view.

To show and hide columns in the Xsheet view:

1. In the Xsheet View toolbar, click the Show Column List button.
2. Click the Expand button located on the right side of the Functions section to display the Column List section.
3. In the Column List section, show or hide the columns by clicking in the column checkbox to add or remove the check mark. You can also click the Hide Selected Column button located in the Xsheet View toolbar’s extra buttons.

To show a hidden column from the Xsheet view:

1. In the Xsheet view, click on the thick grey line that appeared in place of the hidden column. You can also right-click on the column header and select Show Hidden Columns.

The Show Hidden Columns dialog box opens.

2. In the Show column, enable the hidden columns you want to display in the Xsheet view.
Click Check to check all the selected columns.
Click Uncheck to uncheck all the selected columns.

In Toon Boom Harmony, in the Xsheet view menu, you can select View > Unhide All Columns.

To hide and entire column type:

1. In the Column List section, click the Column Type button corresponding to the type you want to show or hide.

The Show/Hide All Columns button shows or hides every column available in the Xsheet view.
The Show Drawing Columns button shows the Drawing columns.
The Show Function Columns button shows the Bezier and Ease function columns.
The Show 3D Path Columns button shows the 3D Path function columns.

The Column Types dialog box opens.

2. Select the types of columns you want to display and disable the ones you want to hide.
