In addition to the main layers that we have to deal with inside of Illustrator,…we also have to deal with sublayers as well.…In this movie, I'll walk you through what a sublayer is, and how you can use it.…The first thing I'm going to do is come up here in my document, and expand…out the Buttons layer.…Inside of the Buttons layer, you're going to see that I have several different…groups associated with each of the buttons down here at the bottom.…When I click on these to target them, I'm actually targeting the…sublayers themselves.…Sublayers are any layers that are indented, like the ones you see here.…If I expand this group out, it's actually got two more sublayers inside of it,…one of which is the text for campus tours, and the other is the path that…makes up the button.…
If I twirl that back up, I can then control the group by itself.…By targeting this group, I make it my active selection.…And you'll notice here, it's actually at the top of the stacking order, but this…button is the last button on the page.…
