Remove background methods

Recommended Posts

I’m guessing the Transparent canvas setting under documents is the same as the Options settings for transparent background when setting up a new document?

Only other option I’ve found is under the burger menu settings for the layers Studio and a check box for checkboard background.

Thank you Sara, 

also do you or anyone else know how to change the colour on the background?

white too bright for drawing, if anything in painting I put a wash down first and then draw/ paint on top with real paints.

Apps Procreate, change background to suit, easy procedure held in layers.

where is the method in AD and AP please 


Regards Rob

Hi Rob

I usually drag out the rectangle tool in the colour i want to fill the whole canvas and then lock it in the layers, there isn’t that option like Procreate or sketchbook to set the background colour in the layers. It would be nice if designer had the option in document setup to choose a colour canvas, similar to what Corel painter has.
