Working with Layers in Fireworks 8

Chapter Description

The Layers feature is a powerful tool that helps you manage and organize objects on your page. Layers are transparent planes where you can create and store objects. In this lesson, you will create a Web page and use layers to control the placement of objects on the page.

Renaming a Layer

The layer name for the rectangle is Layer 1. As you add more layers to your document, it is helpful to give each layer a descriptive name.

  1. Double-click the name in the panel.
  2. In the Layer Name pop-up window, type Header and then press Enter (PC) or Return (Mac).

    You can also click outside the Layer Name pop-up window to apply the name to the layer.
