Learn how the Layers panel works.
- [Instructor] In this movie we're going to talk about…how to use the layers panel.…The layers panel is one of the panels…living here along the panel dock.…And I pointed this out in an earlier movie.…There are different panels that have different things.…In the color movie we talked about how to add a color.…This time we're going to talk about the layers panel,…which is this icon down here on the bottom.…And all these panels can actually be…separated from the dock,…just by clicking on the tab with the name…and dragging them around.…And then we can close out the other one…so we can focus on the panel that we want to work with.…
If you accidentally close out a panel…by clicking on the X and the icon…is no longer visible here in the panel dock,…it's very easy to get it back.…All you need to do is click on the window dropdown…and you will find all the panels listed here…in this list.…And by the way, it's in alphabetical order,…something I didn't notice initially.…So, we're going to go to the layers panel…and we're going to open this back up…
