Hide, show, and lock layers

When you import a layered design document into Flash Catalyst, the layer structure is preserved. This includes which layers are locked or hidden. You can save yourself a few steps by locking layers that you don’t need to edit, such as background or border graphics. You can also hide layers that are hidden in their initial state, such as the over and down states for an interactive button.
