The layer stack
When you add any element to your page, it appears on your scene but also in the layers stack. Let’s explore how that works.
First step: Managing depth
On your page, your elements are “piled” on top of one another; the position of an element on the pile is called its “layer depth”.
- In the layers stack pane, the position of each layer determines its depth: the element at the very top of the stack will be in the foreground, and the lowest one will be the background.
- To change a layer’s position in the stack, simply click and drag it over or below the others
To make editing easier, you can make a layer invisible (hidden) while in editing mode.
- Click on the eye-shaped icon on the right of the layer.
Click a second time to make it visible again. (Note: hiding a layer this way while editing does not affect the visibility of the layer when running the project.)
- To avoid unwanted displacement, you can lock a layer by clicking on the lock-shaped icon on the right of the layer. Click a second time to unlock it.
- To delete a layer (and so the element on your page), click on the cross on the right of the layer.
