How to stop GIF's layer merging
Hey,

Im new to gimp and wanted to make a GIF. I watched a few Youtube videos and followed all the steps until saving as a GIF. On the versions they used (i am using 2.8) there was a box to stop it merging layers but i can not see this on 2.8.
Now whenever i save as a GIF and try and use it, it only shows the last layer.

PS i know you need to export to save as a GIF.

Thanks!

I have not installed any other packs. I tested the image by Filters>Animation>Playback
