No Cloning Layers

[ LiB ] 




You guessed it. There's just no easy way to duplicate a layer. Oh sure, you can duplicate almost anything else with a couple clicks, but I guess layers just aren't as important. Well, I disagree with that, so I'm going to help you out.

Select the layer you want to duplicate and then click the Create Layer button at the bottom left of the Timeline. Now, select all frames of the layer to duplicate by clicking that layer's icon. Finally, drag the selected frames up to the new layer while holding the ALT key (OPT key on Mac). Release your mouse button and you'll see that you now have an exact copy of your layer.

I must say that even though that wasn't very hard, I really think there needs to be a Duplicate Layer button somewhere. But what do I know?
