Tip of the Day

about a minute to read


Have you ever hidden a layer and wished there was an undo button??

The Quick Layers pallet is what you’ve been looking for!

You can activate this pallet by clicking in the menu bar: Window > Pallets > Quick Layers

This pallet allows you to switch the visible layers with the hidden, switch the locked layers with the unlocked, hide the layers of elements you’ve selected or hide all the layers except for those which contain the elements you’ve selected. Using this tool you can isolate one layer in a view!

Lastly, the arrows on the right-hand side allow you to undo and redo layer changes made when using this pallet.
