Custom Backgrounds


To add a custom background within Doodly there are two options.


The first is under the global Settings button. This will allow you to set a custom background for the entire project.



From the settings view go to Custom on the right-hand side. There you will have the option to use either a custom color or backgound for the entire project.



Note: Please see the video of this below.


The alternative is to set a custom background per scene.


Go to the scene settings at the top right-hand side when you are working on a project.




Disable the option to use the board and hand style from the video settings.



Navigate to the custom option to select a custom color or background as needed for that specific scene.
