My problem is essentially this:
I created a function that fades to black before switching layouts. It works great, but after coming back to the original layout, the screen is black. After lots of testing and frustration, the problem seems to be that the black layer I created is not reset--the opacity remains 100%, so the black layer covers up the screen. Trying to manually revert while keeping the execution of the fade isn't really possible not to mention kind of silly to do IMO--the layer should get reset if you ask me, though I'm not a very knowledgeable person.
I could probably fix this by not using a layer, but I'm curious as to why this is the case and how I could fix it, if possible, since it might become troublesome at a later stage.
EDIT: On a random side-note, how do you move an object out of a folder? Dragging the object onto the up arrow that I use to go up a directory doesn't work.
