Hide completely primary layer when switching to other layers

Asked by jeremy k on 2017-03-23

Hi,

When we switch to another layer, the primary layer is still visible underneath, with some transparency effect added.
Is it possible to completely hide the primary layer, when switched ?

Can this also be edited in the .onboard xml layout config file ?

Thank you very much for this great app.

Hmm, I don't believe the first layer can be completely skipped when drawing. That has been hard-coded behavior as long as I can remember. However, it should be possible to hide it behind a non-transparent layer color, for example (pick the color scheme of your choice):

cp /usr/share/onboard/themes/Charcoal.colors ~/.local/share/onboard/themes
gedit ~/.local/share/onboard/themes/Charcoal.colors

Look for the <layer> tags and set all opacity attributes to "1.0".
