Creating Layers

Creating Layers


Have got most things going that I need but layers is a problem.

If I set up say 3 layers and currently layer 1 has drawings on it, I want to place a sub drawing in layer 2, how do I select layer 2, and when I do that the screen should be blank, awaiting for the drawing to be placed in it. Then if I select layer 1 it should show the original drawings (not the new one on layer 2) and then If I select the default layer 0 it should show both !

Have I got this right ? Something I have missed I think.

RE: Creating Layers

I don't think you can do what you want to do.
However you can freeze layer 1 or layer 2.
When you want to see both layers unfreeze them both.

RE: Creating Layers

If you have things on one layer you want to hide, change the active layer to a different one, then turn off the layer you don't want visible. Don't use the default layer, create one yourself.
