Layers

Adobe PDF files created from some graphics software, including Adobe InDesign CS and Adobe Illustrator CS, may include layers that were built in the original document. You will use the Layers tab to enable and disable certain layers within a brochure that was created using Adobe InDesign CS and exported to the Adobe PDF file format.

1.
Choose File > Open. Navigate to the Lesson15 folder and choose the file newsletter_export.pdf. Click the Open button.

2.
Click the Layers tab on the side of the document window or choose View > Navigation Tabs > Layers. Click on the (+) sign next to newsletter_project.indd.

3.
Click the Eye icon () to the left of the Column 1–English. Clicking on the eye hides it and turns off the layer for viewing and printing.

4.
Click the empty box to the left of the Column 1–Portuguese. The Eye icon becomes visible. The elements on this layer are displayed on screen, and will print if the document is printed. You can use layers in your design software to create separate versions of documents, or to control which elements are visible or will print.

5.
Click the Eye icon to toggle the Illustrations layer off and click the Eye icon again to make the layer visible. Layers can include both text and graphics.
