    Well, the instruction was going along just fine, and I was able to follow along….UNTIL, you switched to the blank layer and did not say how you switched. You switched from the image to the blank layer twice and didn’t say how either time.

      Hello Dawna,

      Thank you for the feedback! The shortcut to toggle between the canvas and your tracing paper image is CTRL + T (that’s command + T on a iOS).

      Hope this helps,
