Layers can be used to make more complex drawings or sketches, or to show and hide sections of your work. Layers allow you to draw on different levels, and you can hide, delete, or rearrange the layers for more creative control and freedom when you’re drawing or taking notes.
In notebooks the background layer consists of the selected template. Even if your notebook has a blank background, it still has the default blank template as its background layer. The background layer can't be deleted or moved.
Note It’s also possible to add layers of annotations to PDFs and ebooks, although you can’t use templates in this context.
Create a new layer by tapping Add layer while in the side menu bar’s layer menu.
Hide a layer by tapping the visibility icon (an eye). When the eye is closed, your layer is hidden.
Merge layers by tapping the merge layers icon in the side menu, next to trash. You can add up to five active layers. If you need to make some changes, use the undo button to reopen the individual layers.
Delete a layer by clicking the trash icon.
Rearrange layers by tapping the arrows in the list of layers. You can’t rearrange the template layer.
