Add and name a layer

You’ll now add a layer, name the layer, and then add a graphic symbol to the layer.

1.
In the Timeline, click the Car layer.

2.
Click Insert Layer below the Timeline.

The new layer appears above the Car layer and becomes the active layer.

3.
Double-click the layer name, type Background as the new name for the layer, and press Enter (Windows) or Return (Macintosh).

As a best practice, always name each layer, and give the layer a meaningful name that indicates the type of content in the layer.

4.
In the Library panel (Window > Library), select the background graphic symbol and drag it to the Stage.

Because the Background layer is above all layers except the Mask layer, objects on that layer appear over objects on lower layers.
