Animate PLE Light Table


I’m evaluating Animate PLE before I cross grade from Studio and got a quesion re: the Light Table in Hand-Drawn Animation view.

I’ve imported a sketch from a scan on a new layer, when I turn on the Light Table, the scan however doesn’t show through when I’m on another layer to do a cleanup drawing.
It does do so when I’m in Animation view.

Is there a way to have the Light Table work in Hand-Drawn Animation view as it does in the Animation view or am I missing something?



If you import and Vectorize, uncheck “Create Symbol for Imported Items”…
As far as I know “Symbols” don’t show up under the Light Table in Drawing View…?

Select the Symbol in the Timeline / go to Edit / Expand Symbol…


Many thanks for the quick reply. That worked.
