It seems that the onion-skin doesn't work.

The onion-skin is the feature to display pixels of the next or previous frame on transparent pixels of the current frame. Therefore, you must set the transparent color of each frame.

Where is the eraser tool?

GraphicsGale does not have the eraser tool.
All you have to do is painting a canvas with a background color.

GraphicsGale treats one of colors as transparent area.
Layers and frames can have their transparent color.

If a transparent color of a layer is set, the area filled with that
color is transparent and its under layers are visible.

A transparent color of a frame is applied as a transparent color of an
image file which supports transparency such as a GIF.

Why is a transparent color invalidated after a selected image is fixed?

If you don't need an alpha-channel, invalidate an alpha-channel with any one of the following ways.
  • Click Delete Alpha Channel in Image menu.
  • Invalidate an alpha-channel button. In this way, an alpha-channel is invalidated but is not deleted.
