Grouping Layers

T-SBFND-007-007

Grouping layers helps organize your work and keeps your list of layers uncluttered. You can group selected layers or create an empty group layer and add layers to it.

When you group selected layers, they become the sub-layers of the group layer. The first newly-created group layer is named Group. Subsequent group layers are appended with a number. For example, Group_1. The number increments with each new group layer you create. The selected group layer is highlighted in blue and its sub-layers are displayed below.

Within a group layer, you can create sub-groups to further streamline your work, and rename them to suit your project—see Renaming Layers. Grouped layers can also be animated.
