Synfig version & platform:
Synfig 1.2.2 - Windows 10 x64 Pro

Issue description:

It would be great to let us set a default background in the Canvas Properties.
Now you see by default a transparent checker background, and when previewing/rendering it is set to gray.

allow us to set a default "world" or "scene" background as in Blender.

You can simply drag-n-drop any image file to Synfig workarea from file manager and then place it below all layers.

Yes I know, but this feels like a "hack" and clutters up the workspace layers.
Just setting a default background color for the canvas in the properties would be great. If you still want to use a background image or rectangle you would just set it as transparent...

Hi,
I added some options for backgrounds:
Selection of Preview Background Color (Render page)
image
image

Add automatically a default background layer on new animation (Document page)

  • None
  • Solid Color
  • Image - Scale to fit canvas depend on the option in Editing page

These layers will be named "Background"
image

Cheers :)

@BobSynfig Hey that's awesome! Every contribution counts. I wish I knew how to properly develop software with C++ to help as well, but it's great to see more people adding more "quality-of-life" options 🙂
