animate pro cutter issue

i have a drawing of a torso and it is being covered by two pieces that represent the front of a jacket. to animate the opening of the jacket i use cutters that allow me to see the torso. now when i want to double click into the torso drawing to redraw the piece, the cutters are selected even though they are not visible. any ideas?

I’m not sure that I understand your question but if you want to draw into a “covered” element, either select the element first or temporarily disable/hide the elements covering the one you want to draw into.

hey kriz

thanks for your response. my character is built similar to the way we build at my studio. we use a lot of cutters in our builds and disabling these cutters or the parts they are cutting in order to draw into symbols underneath is going to be time consuming during animation.
