Grey and white grid denotes transparency

Edited the thread title to make it more descriptive than the original plea for help.

Another option is to add a new layer, fill it with white, and move it underneath the original. That way, if you erase, you see the white from the bottom layer instead of the transparency checkerboard.

When you first open the program it comes with a white background. If you then add a layer it will still show as white.


If the checkerboard wasn't there, how would you know if it was a transparent layer that you ware working on? If the canvas was transparent you would be able to see your desktop. Think of layers like transparent sheets.
