Learn about layers, including design layers.
- [Instructor] Manual drafting is primarily done…on individual sheets of transparent or translucent paper.…Vectorworks has a similar system called layers.…There are two kinds of layers,…one for design,…and the other for presentation sheets.…Let's take a look at the design layers.…In the info bar,…a little bit left of center here,…we have a pull-down,…that when we hover over it says the active layer,…so this is the active layer pull-down.…So here we can click,…and see what layer we have available,…and which one is active.…
So right now, we have design layer 1 active,…let's see what items are in design layer 1.…So we hover over the different elements here,…we have a table, and the different chairs.…Let's select one of these chairs.…In the object info palette,…on the right side of the screen,…the lower right side of the screen,…we have a layer pull-down…and it shows design layer 1.…So this is the layer that the selected object is in,…and I'm going to do that for the tabletop,…it says the same thing.…
