I need help spot directing my overlay

I need help every time I try to adding an overlay in my story, I can never see it even when I try and spot direct it

Are you setting it up like this

@overlay OVERLAY NAME create
@overlay OVERLAY NAME opacity 1 in 0

If you can’t see it there’s a chance it’s off the camera so I’d either zoom out of the background or move the overlay using the portal tools!

I had the same problem the other day, if your overlay has an AND in the name it won’t show up. Apparently the script reads it as the & command

As @/Baleigh_episode said- You have to zoom out and move the overlay.

And still, if the overlay doesn’t appears… reload the page!

Is it in the right layer? You can use the portal tools to move it forward.

Also, if you can send a screenie of what it’s telling you we can all help a bit more.
