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.
