Chapter 18. GoLive Primer > Adding a Layer (Floating Box)

Adding a Layer (Floating Box)

Earlier in this book, I showed you how to set up a CSS layer by turning an element into an object (see "Creating an Object" in Chapter 11). GoLive refers to a CSS layer as a floating box, but they are virtually identical, and anything you can do to one, you can do to the other.

To add a CSS layer to a Web page:

1.
With the document window open in layout mode, double-click the Floating Box button (Figure 18.22) in the Objects palette.

Figure 18.22. The Floating Box button is located in the Objects palette. It allows you to add a layer to your Web page.


The layer (Floating Box) now appears in the document window as a numbered rectangle. The numbers correspond to the order in which the layers were created.

2.
Move the mouse pointer to any edge of the layer so that the I-beam pointer changes to a hand (Figure 18.23). Then click to select the object or drag the layer anywhere you want in the window.

Figure 18.23. When a layer has been added to the page, you can select the entire layer by clicking one of its borders.


3.
To change the size of the box after you have selected it, drag one of the handles on any side or corner of the layer (Figure 18.24).

Figure 18.24. When a layer is selected, you can change its width or height by dragging one of the handles.
