Sometimes, you may not want to see certain layers of certain panels in the Onion Skin. In order to exclude layers from the Onion Skin, you can set those layers as Background layers.
When you create a panel, it contains two layers: A BG layer and an A layer. The BG layer is already set to be a background layer by default, which means it will not be included in the Onion Skin. At any time, you can choose which layers in a panel are actually considered background layers or not. All layers that are set to be background layers will be excluded from the Onion Skin.
- In the Onion Skin toolbar, click on Toggle Onion Skin to enable Onion Skin.
The Toggle Background Layer button appears in the top-left corner of each layer in the layer list. The BG layer that was automatically created with the panel will already be a background layer.
- Do one of the following to change whether or not a layer is considered a background layer.
- Click on the Toggle Background Layer button of a layer to change whether or not it is considered a background layer.
- Select one or several layers. Then, in the top menu, select Layer > Toggle Background Layers.
Layers that are set to be backgrounds will not be included in the Onion Skin, and layers that are not set to be background will be included in the Onion Skin.
