Making swap sets using imported hands/mouths in Essentials

hi, I’m using ToonBoom Harmony Essentials 21.2. I’m having a problem with making swap sets for hands, mouths, etc. I understand how to make these as drawing substitutions, drawn with the brush tool directly in Harmony. But I want to import character assets as .psd files. For the hands, in Photoshop I put them all in a shared folder, so they import as a series of images on one layer in the timeline in Harmony. However, I am unable to make the series of hand images function as drawing substitutions. They do not display as numbered options in the drawing substitution window. Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Thanks
