Nesting layers

Nesting layers

A nested layer is a layer whose code is contained in another layer. Nesting is often used to group layers together. A nested layer moves with its parent layer and can be set to inherit visibility from its parent.

You can enable the Nesting option to automatically nest when you draw a layer starting inside another layer.

To draw a nested layer:

  1. In the Layout category of the Insert bar, click the Draw Layer button. This is a picture of the feature being described.
  2. In the Document window’s Design view, drag to draw a layer inside an existing layer:

    If Nesting is turned off in Layers preferences, Alt-drag (Windows) or Option-drag (Macintosh) to nest a layer inside an existing layer.

To insert a nested layer:

  • Place the insertion point inside an existing layer in the Document window’s Design view, then select Insert > Layer.

  2. Select a layer in the Layers panel, then Control-drag (Windows) or Command-drag (Macintosh) the layer to the target layer in the Layers panel.
  3. Release the mouse button when the name of the target layer is highlighted.

To nest layers automatically when you draw a layer starting inside another layer:
