Join Brian Wood for an in-depth discussion in this video Organizing with layers, part of Figma for UX Design.
- [Instructor] Layers are an important part of working…with web and app designs,…so that we can keep our content organized,…and make it easier to select…among a lot of other reasons, actually.…In Figma, content in the layers panel, which is on the left,…is actually organized by frames.…In this video, you'll explore layers,…and see how you can use them to your advantage in Figma.…The layers panel is actually docked on he left here.…If we want to, we can make it a little bit wider,…but we can't make it very narrow.…It's gonna go as far as it is.…If you wanna hide it, you can come up here to the menu,…right up here,…and you're gonna see we have View, right there,…and you'll see Layers Panel.…
We can actually turn off or hide…a lot of these different types of content…that we've got out here.…The layers panel is organized, like I said, by frames.…If you look in here, if you hover over things,…you're gonna see it's gonna actually highlight it out there,…even to individual objects within a frame that you've got.…Just like other programs, these are organized…
