Why isn't my overlay appearing

I have no idea why my overlays aren’t appearing immediately. And my third one doesn’t appear at all. Can someone help me? Thank you in advance

EXT. OUTDOOR RESTAURANT OL - NIGHT

&overlay FANCY TABLE create

&overlay STRAWBERRY PANCAKE create
&overlay STRAWBERRY PANCAKE shifts to 120 88 in zone 2 in 0
&overlay STRAWBERRY PANCAKE scales to 2.045 2.045
&overlay STRAWBERRY PANCAKE opacity 1 in 0

&overlay CHICKEN SALAD create
&overlay CHICKEN SALAD shifts to 215 124 in zone 2 in 0
&overlay CHICKEN SALAD scales to 1.654 1.654
&overlay CHICKEN SALAD opacity 1 in 0

&overlay CHICKEN SANDWICH create

are they layered behind the table overlay? try previewing it and seeing the spots they show up at

I figured out that I spelled the sandwich overlay wrong. But they still appear in zone 2

Never mind, it didn’t appear at all again. I only got the writer’s warning about ‘stage view’

Try adding them to background. You can delete the “&create” ones and just place them. First write the scale and then shift. U can write both at the same time using “AND”. Hope it works let me know if it does or not.

Are you set in zone 2?

EXT. OUTDOOR RESTAURANT OL - NIGHT with STRAWBERRY PANCAKE to 2.045 120 88 in zone 2 at layer x with CHICKEN SALAD to 1.654 214 124 in zone 2 at layer x with CHICKEN SANDWICH to 1.000 100 100 in zone 2 at layer x

They are still not appearing in zone 2. What else might be wrong?

paste this into your script, but change [layer] to whatever layer that you want

Thank you so much to @LyraKeiken @Em546 @Eclipsa @Marshmallow_O. It finally worked!
