    Copying and exporting layers...

    I've downloaded AR3 and yeah....so exciting! Having a great time getting used to the interface and exploring all the nooks and crannies...

    I've started painting an image, using about four layers. I want to save a layer intact and export it to another program. In the past (2.5), I saved and exported it as a .png extention, but this time I could not get it to work...I still got a white background (I did "close" all the other layers). Is there another option that I'm not aware of?

    Thanks so much if you can help me!

    Right clicking or clicking on the Menu tab for the layer and selecting "Export Layer" has always worked for me. I did it just a little while ago in fact. Is this the method you're using?

    (NOTE: the shortcut listed next to the Export option is a custom shortcut, so it's likely different for other users if it has one at all).
