Drawing View issue

I am using studio 5 and when i draw something and then create a new layer, why is the image from the previous drawing not showing up, like if i create a character and draw the body on the body layer, then go to an arm layer, it doesn’t show me the body, i know i can turn the light table on to see it or onion skin but i am not trying to trace it, how does it all come together, am i missing something?
