Okay, I've created three circles that move from one end of the frame to another. Three frames total.

Now, I want to add a square. I put the square in the first frame but when I go to another fram the square is not visible!

How do I add things to animate?

Once a frame has been created you have to copy your shapes into the new frames.

Add your square then hit Edit> Copy Shapes.

Go to your new frames and hit edit> Paste shapes. Now animate it.

To help you guide through the animation process (movements) select your square and hit view Onion Skinning and adjust it to how you want. A shadow of the shape will appear of where that shape is located in the spots where that shape is in other frames.

I finally understand the use of Onion Skinning.

It is a WYSIWYG interface. You put a square in one frame and that is the only place it is. If you want to put that square in the rest of the frames, select it, copy it, go to next frame and paste to end of frames. In Oct time frame we will have a short-cut for this.
