Creating Layers

Before you can dig your fingers into all the nifty layer features, you need to put a layer on the page. You insert a layer by drawing it on the page.

To draw a layer

1.
On the Layout category of the Insert bar, click on the Draw Layer button: . The pointer will appear as crosshairs in the Document window (Figure 14.17).

Figure 14.17. After you click on the Draw Layer button, the pointer will turn into crosshairs you can use to draw the layer.


2.
Click the cursor at the point where you want the top-left corner of the layer to begin, and drag the cursor to where you want the bottom-right corner to be.

3.
Let go of the mouse button, and a layer will appear in the Document window (Figure 14.18).

Figure 14.18. After you draw a layer, it appears exactly where you positioned it. A layer marker also appears in the window, indicating the layer's location in the code.
