I’ll elaborate: I am working on animating a pendulum swing, and I have animated one swing forward. I want to animate the pendulum swinging backward, so I am curious if there is a way yet to duplicate and reverse a sequence of frames? Because as of now, the only way I can think of is by lasso-tool all the previous frames in reverse order. Thanks.September 23, 2020 at 9:01 am #3190NielsKeymaster
Thanks for asking Jaira!
A reverse feature is on our todo list already – so it will come in one of the next alpha releases.
But for now, I would just copy/paste the drawings one by one. Not using the lasso, but copy the whole drawing (frame). Just click it in the X-Sheet (or flip to it) and hit Ctrl C (or Cmd C on Mac). Go to the frame you want to insert it and hit Ctrl V (Cmd V on Mac).
You’ll see that the copied drawings are tintet light brown, which means they are clones of (connected to) their respective originals. So when you adjust, clean up or color your original drawings, your clones will automatically update.
Let me know if this makes sense and if it helped at all?

Thanks! Also, maybe you could figure out how to make multiple stamps of a selection? I had to re-lasso and stamp the same image over and over again (since it was a pendulum) it might be helpful for animating objects that don’t change shape very often such as boxes or the like. Just a suggestion.September 30, 2020 at 3:45 pm #3222NielsKeymaster
Actually this is already in the latest version. You just hold down Shift when stamping – then it keeps the selection floating. You can also stamp with the Return key, and therefore use Shift Return to keep it.
Also after you lost your floating selection, you can get the latest one back, by hitting Shift Esc.
