Cel selection exclusively on one layer

I’m trying to use the replace color on a layer of animation but every time I select the cels it selects all the other cells of each frame meaning the color changes on every layer.
Is there a way around this?

hi, 12fish!

there are multiple ways how to select something in timeline:

  • click on the layer: select all cels for that layer.
  • click on the frame number: select all cels in all layers just on that frame.
  • click on the cel itself: select only that cel in active layer.
  • of course you can drag a selection across multiple cels, frames and layers.
    active selection will always show the border and darkened cels, frames and layers.

if you use replace colour (shift+r) command, make sure the button in lower right corner is switched from “all” to “selected”
