Thank you so much I’m going to try this! :grinning:

It’s not working for me. Did I do something wrong?

You need to create or add your overlay to the background first


Thanks, but Im still very confused. If I add it right away, then its already there and I want it to fade in

You can add opacity 0 on the very beginning after the background

Okay thank you so much!!

Thank you, I tried that, but the words aren’t appearing.

it shows up, but I want it to fade in

I tested it out on my phone, but this just happened

I just tried that, but it still wont appear when I preview it on my computer or on the app. It might be a glitch but thank you for the help :revolving_hearts: I appreciate it!

Test it on your app

I did its still not working tho :confused:

What exactly it’s not working? Is overlay not showing up? Or is not fading in?
