The green 'b' is the one I want to make align to the word. So, I then move the 'needle' to the 'b' I need to move and:

Onion skinning is for frame-by-frame animation. So if you wanted to make a stick figure jump, in the first keyframe you would have him standing, 2nd keyframe he might squat down a little, 3rd, keyframe he will be jumping up to the air and opening his arms and legs, and so on. And to help this process, you use onion skinning, so that you can create a smooth animation by making the small incremental changes. So seeing the frame before or the frame after helps you position the current frame. See below.
