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.

Showing and Hiding a Layer

If you have a complex drawing, it is sometimes helpful to display only the portions of the drawing that you are currently working on. This way, you don’t accidentally delete or move another object that might be overlapping the object that you are modifying.

  1. Select the Header layer and click the Show/Hide column (the eye icon).

    The rectangle is hidden.

  2. Click the Show/Hide column again to display the objects on the layer.
