Re-trace from drawing


I’m new to font creation and Glyph Mini and my question might show this - but I simply can’t figure it out.

I have my font drawn by hand and want to use Glyph Mini to digitally trace it. So ideally, I would import a scan of a letter as a background image and then re-trace it in Glyph Mini. How to I do this? I have tried various ways but the background seems to disappear when I draw. Is this only possible in the full Glyphs?

I know I could go through Illustrator but it seems like adding an unnecessary extra step.

Thanks for your help,

If the image disappears, check View menu > Show Background Image.
