Layers Palette

The Layers palette and the controls that can be found on it are described in the table below. When controls also bring up additional dialogs, these are referenced for more information.

What It Does

The Layers palette lets you view, create and edit layers. You can also add the following to individual layers, or layer groups:

masks

adjustments

procedurals

shader layers

Note:  For shader layers, the fields that are available to each shader are the same as those in the Shaders Palette section.

Notes

dropdown, switch

Filter bar function that gives the choices: Name, Type, Attribute, and Color Tag. Depending on which filter option you select, the filter bar shows one of the following:

- filter for the type of layers by clicking on the associated icons.

- filter for the attributes of layers by clicking on the associated icons.

- filter for the color tags of the selected color button.

Both Type and Attribute provide icons that allow you to set the parameters for your filter.

Quickly clear the entry box by pressing the button.
