Chapter 11. Layers > Layer management

Layer management

With the abundance of information on the Layers palette comes one minor drawback: Sometimes it's hard to find things. Luckily, Adobe built in a locator command. Now, how about a locator command for the contents of Elaine's handbag?

To locate an object on the Layers palette:

1.
Choose the Selection tool (V).

2.
Select the object in the illustration window that you want to locate on the Layers palette. You can select more than one object; they will all be found. (To select an object in a group, use the Direct-selection or Group-selection tool.)

3.
Choose Locate Object from the Layers palette menu. The selected object's top-level layer list will expand, if it isn't already expanded, and a selection square will appear for the object.

  • If “Locate Layer” appears on the palette menu instead of “Locate Object,” choose Palette Options from the palette menu and uncheck the Show Layers Only option. The Locate Object command will then become available.
