Selecting Layers

Because layers are also objects, they have the same set of properties as objects, such as Position, Rotation, and Scale. Changing the parameters of a layer affects all the objects contained in the layer, but not necessarily in the same manner as selecting all the objects directly (see “Transforming Layers,” later in this chapter).

To select a layer:

  • In the Layers tab, click the layer row.

    When you select a layer, a single bounding box appears in the Canvas around the edges of the entire layer (Figure 4.3).

To select multiple layers:

  • In the Layers tab, click one layer row, then Command-click additional layer rows.

✓ Tip

  • If you select a layer row and then Shift-click another layer, you select all the objects in between the layers as well.
