You don't need an option. Just add a frame or more to your cursor.

Hi vlasta. I have a few questions. my first question is what has happened to my animation? i was working on my animation today and the lines were very neat and strait and i always save my work using the save as option but i do not not save it on just now I opened my animation and when I opened it was ruined the drawing and animation were the same as how i created it but the lines have become stat-icky. my animation is ruined all that i worked for is ruined. is there anyway to restore it so the lines are normal? my second question is why does this occur frequently? I work on an animation and its normal then it becomes ruined somehow this has happened to me more than once
