The Layers menu item will open the Layers Tab, which is located in the lower Side bar on the lower right of the screen.
The Layers Tab is used to control the attributes of different layers.
Layering allows objects to be controlled in the following ways:
All objects in a layout are automatically assigned to a Layer. By definition, all the items in a Layer have the same status with regard to the four possibilities indicated. Changes in each Layer can be made by clicking on any of the four icons shown below for view, print, and/or edit.

Edit Icon image\ebx_352476167.gif
If the View icon is grayed out, it means all items in the selected Layer are not visible and they cannot be selected or modified in any way.
If the Print icon is grayed out, it means all items in the selected Layer cannot be printed.
If the Edit icon is grayed out, it means all items in the selected Layer are visible but they cannot be selected or modified in any way.
All the individual objects in each Layer are listed in the Layer dialog box. If the item is colored, it is displayed in its color.
When an LED layout is created, several layers are created as well. These layers, in addition to being visible or not in the layout, can also be exported or not in the Export dialog box. Note that a layer not being displayed in the layout does not mean that it will not be included in an export.
