(SOLVED) Animate crashing in drawingMode

While typing out the question I figured out a solution (gah… :slight_smile: ). Question and solution below:

I’m correcting a rough-animation to be on-model, but am having problems with Animate crashing: I have 3 drawing layers-- the model, the rough animation, and one for the fixed animation. I use the next/previous-column keyboard shortcuts to flip between the layers, but once-in-awhile I accidentally select a sound layer ( this is for a lipsync ) and draw on it… and Animate immediately crashes.

There’s a video showing this happen here (8mB):

Is there any fix for this?

Just go to the x-sheet use “Hide Selected Column” on the sound layer-- then it won’t be selectable by the next/previous-column commands.
