Changing layer visibility

Changing layer visibility

While working on your document, you can show and hide layers manually, using the Layers panel, to see how the page will appear under different conditions.

To change layer visibility:

  1. Select Window > Layers to open the Layers panel.
  2. Click in the eye icon column for a layer to change its visibility.
    • An open eye means the layer is visible.
    • A closed eye means the layer is invisible.
    • If there is no eye icon, usually the layer inherits visibility from its parent. (When layers are not nested, the parent is the document body, which is always visible.)

      Also, no eye icon appears when no visibility is specified (which appears in the Property inspector as Default visibility).

      This is a picture of the feature being described.

To change the visibility of all layers at once:

  • In the Layers panel (Window > Layers), click the header eye icon at the top of the column.
