Transparent Background Troubles
I am trying to create a logo with a transparent background and I think that I know how to make the background transparent, but after I do, I can't draw on it.

I am using GIMP 2.10.2

First, I open a new window. Then I go to "File" and select "New" from the menu. In the "create a new image" box, click the arrow next to "px" and select inches from the drop down menu. I enter my desired print size next to "width" and "height" and select "ok".
Then I go over to the right side of the window where the layer is listed and I right click on the black square with the word "background" next to it. I select "Edit later attributes", I set the opacity to zero, and I select ok.

After I do all this, I try to draw a line, and I can't.

Please help!
