Activating Layers

You can activate specific layers for editing. Layers that are not activated are locked for editing.


Page Mode is active.


  • On the extended toolbar, activate the button of the layer that you want to activate.


The layer button is highlighted, and the symbols that belong to that layer become available for editing. Symbols that belong to a deactivated layer are grayed out. This allows you to find out which symbols belong to which layer. This is especially useful for the layout and project layers.


If you activate Colorize Layer on the extended toolbar, symbols are colorized according to their layers.

After Completing This Task

Deactivate all the layers that you do not want to edit by deactivating the respective buttons.
