Who can use this feature
Users on Any plan can access this functionality
Only users with Edit access can toggle layer visibility off and on
You can toggle a layer's visibility in the Layers Panel. You can still change the position, or adjust the properties of a hidden layer.
Visibility for layers (and properties) is shown with an eye icon.
There are a few ways to toggle a layer's visibility.
Toggle a layer's visibility off and on using the keyboard shortcut:
- Mac: Command Shift H
- Windows: Control Shift H
You can also toggle a layer's visibility in the Layers Panel. You can toggle layers individually, or hide all child objects in a group or Frame.
- Hover over the layer, group or Frame in the Layers Panel.
- Click on the visibility icon (the eye) to toggle the layer's visibility off.
- The eye will close and the layer will be hidden in the canvas. It will also appear as inactive (greyed out) in the Layers Panel.
- Click the closed eye icon to toggle the layer's visibility on again.
Note: When you hide a layer, you won't be able to select it in the canvas. This includes using the Select Layer option in the right-click menu. You can still select the layer in the Layers Panel.
