@scottpetrovic We might also need to add and remove metadata fields.
The fields in metadata should be configured in per-document basis
This looks great. It de-clutters the UI and lets the user focus on the content.

Options suggested for saving and loading data by with @rempt on IRC on 22 March 2020
Option 1: Every board is a .kra file and can have everything a .kra file can have, including animation. A metafile describes the storyboard. The docker would load the xml file and thumbnails, but only the active board is loaded in krita
Option 2: the .kra file contains the board as separate images. You’d save the .kra file with multiple images inside. The docker would load the kra file and find the boards. All boards are loaded into memory.
Option 3: the .kra file contains layer groups, and every top-level group is a board. The docker would list the top level layer groups, and when a board is selected use the isolate layer feature on that group to show the board.
Option 4: Reusing the technique the compositions docker uses. That would make it possible for different boards in a storyboard to share elements, like a background layer. Basically, every board then consists of one or more layers from a single Krita image.

@scottpetrovic We can add a QList of storyboard structs to KisDocument. Changing kra_saver and kra_loader might be needed for getting that data to and from kra file and KisDocument. I think we wouldn't need the animation API. Would the animation API have any advantage over saving it explicitly as a member of KisDocument ?

number 8 seems a bit weird though. Having a visibility button would mean the comment section will dissappear when you click it no?

@Bollebib Should we make the storyboard docker independent of timeline docker. That way you can add any image on the canvas or even .kra files. For "playing the storyboard" we can have a duration associated with each image in storyboard and play it from storyboard itself.
