Drawing lines

Recommended Posts

I am pasting snipping-tool clips and wish to draw arrow-headed lines within & between the illustrations. My lines will show on the clip where I begin drawing, but not outside the clip, nor in any other clip.

If I save, close and reopen the png, I can draw anywhere. This is cumbersome - what am I doing incorrectly?

If you have an active selection, then any drawing is always clipped to it. Edit -> Deselect, then draw.

Also, make sure you're drawing on the top-most layer. Otherwise your lines will get "clipped" by the things you have pasted into layers above it.
