When working with many layers, you can temporarily hide certain layers to avoid cluttering the stage.
You can also hide a group. When a group is hidden, all of the layers it contains appear hidden, but their individual visibility state is preserved. Therefore, if you hide only some layers inside a group, hide the group itself, then unhide the group, the layers that were individually hidden will remain hidden and the ones that were visible will be visible again.
- Do one of the following:
- In the Layer panel or the Layers view, click the Show/Hide Layer icon just left of the layer.
- In the Thumbnails view, click on the Show/Hide Layer icon just beneath the layer's name.
- In the Layer panel, the Layers view or the Thumbnails view, right-click on the layer and select Show/Hide Layers
- In the Layer panel, the Layers view or the Thumbnails view, select the layer, then select Layer > Show/Hide Layers from the top menu.
