    Changing the paper layer

    My bottom layer started off white and I drew some lineart on it. However, when I tried to make this layer transparent so that I could move another layer underneath it, it did not work. I could see the lineart layer had become "transparent", but it still did not show what was underneath. Do I just need to be careful in the future or is there a way around this?
    Thanks very much.

    Hello SusanSun

    Welcome to the forum.

    I assume you are using the full version of ArtRage (the trial version will not do layers).

    I bet you are using the Layer opacity instead of the Paper opacity, it's quite confusing at first. I did the same.

    Once you have the two layers (like on the enclosed example) do this:
    1. Move your layers around and be sure to select the top layer.
    2. Press the little arrow in The Canvas Panel. Select Edit Paper Settings.
    3. Set Opacity of the paper to 0%. Now the linear layer have become transparent.
    4. But now there are squares all over the place. Simply select the bottom layer, edit paper settings for that too and set the opacity to 100%. Now you are ready to paint away…
