frames combining

Im pretty new to this software, so this might be a bit dumb, but when i do traditional 2d animation my frames (that are right next to eachother) keep combining in to one long frame without my doing anything, this is driving me insane and im losing a lot of perfectly good frames… please someone help :stuck_out_tongue:

If you are in the Timeline view, each element should have frames of animation lined up horizontally. In the Xsheet view each column represents a drawing element and the frames are lined up vertically.

It sounds like each frame of animation has been created as a separate element with the drawings all at frame 1 of the project.
