Chapter 16. Layers > To merge layers:

To merge layers:

1.
Shift, then Shift-click the consecutive layers you want to merge or Cmd-click/Ctrl-click non-consecutive layers. Make sure none of the layers you want to merge are locked.

Figure 1. Shift-click the layers you want to merge, then click the Merge Layers button.


2.
Click the Merge Layers button at the top of the palette.

3.
From the Choose Destination Layer pop-up menu , choose the layer you want the highlighted layers to be merged into, then click OK . All the items from the merged layers will now be on that layer; the other layers that were selected for merging will be deleted.

Figure 2. From the Choose Destination Layer pop-up menu, choose which layer you want the highlighted layers to be merged into.


Figure 3. Layer 3 and Layer 4 were merged into Layer 4.


If you have created a layer just to contain non-printing “notes,” you'll want to keep that layer non-printing. At other times you might want to prevent a layer from printing temporarily (say you want to print just a text layer without printing a layer that contains pictures).
