Chapter 16. Layers > Layer basics

Layer basics

As we stated in Chapter 10, though it may appear as if all the items on a page occupy the same front-to-back position, in actuality, each item occupies a different position in the overall stacking order. Each new item is automatically positioned in front of all the existing items on the current layer.

Every layout has a Default layer, and all new items are placed onto that layer unless you create and choose a different one. Using the Layers palette , you can add up to 255 more layers, up to a maximum of 256 per layout. Layers don't change how a layout looks or prints, but they make it much easier to edit items selectively . In QuarkXPress, a layer spreads across all the pages of a layout.
