1 00:00:00,230 --> 00:00:02,710 In this video, we will be learning about layers and 2 00:00:02,710 --> 00:00:06,790 prepping our files for the next step of building our wire frame. 3 00:00:06,790 --> 00:00:11,220 To get started, let's go ahead and go up to our Window, in our menu bar, and 4 00:00:11,220 --> 00:00:13,010 choose Layers. 5 00:00:13,010 --> 00:00:15,540 Cuz we want to open our Layers panel. 6 00:00:15,540 --> 00:00:16,610 You can also hit F7. 7 00:00:19,920 --> 00:00:24,060 In our Layers panel, you can see that we have one layer: layer 1. 8 00:00:24,060 --> 00:00:32,362 And within that layer, we have eight different guides and our eight rectangles, 9 00:00:35,140 --> 00:00:40,160 You can have as many objects within a layer as you want. 10 00:00:40,160 --> 00:00:43,120 It's a matter of sort of grouping within that layer. 11 00:00:45,960 --> 00:00:50,660 And as you work, you wanna try to stay as organized as possible. 12 00:00:50,660 --> 00:00:53,280 And we've just finished creating our guides. 13 00:00:53,280 --> 00:00:59,490 And so now, we want to lock this layer so we can't alter it in the future. 14 00:00:59,490 --> 00:01:03,550 And so we can move on to our next step of designing the wireframe. 15 00:01:05,360 --> 00:01:11,100 To rename this layer, we double-click on layer 1, and we'll call it Guide. 16 00:01:11,100 --> 00:01:13,944 And I'll click Off. 17 00:01:13,944 --> 00:01:18,343 To turn the visibility on and off on a layer, we have a switch here. 18 00:01:18,343 --> 00:01:23,570 So you can hit this eye and that will turn the layer off and then back on. 19 00:01:24,810 --> 00:01:28,940 To lock a layer, which in this case we want and that would mean that none 20 00:01:28,940 --> 00:01:34,420 of these objects can move, so just as an example if I try to move these now. 21 00:01:34,420 --> 00:01:35,560 It works, no problem. 22 00:01:36,570 --> 00:01:42,190 I'm going to Edit > Undo Move or Cmd+Z a couple times to put that back. 23 00:01:44,190 --> 00:01:47,160 And you can see as I hit this lock toggle and 24 00:01:47,160 --> 00:01:50,890 then try to do anything, I automatically can't. 25 00:01:50,890 --> 00:01:52,490 So that's perfect, that's how you want it. 26 00:01:55,290 --> 00:01:57,700 And because we're going to continue working, 27 00:01:57,700 --> 00:02:00,040 we can't continue working on a locked layer. 28 00:02:00,040 --> 00:02:05,260 You must create a new layer, and then work on that new layer that is not locked. 29 00:02:05,260 --> 00:02:11,060 So, to create a new layer, come down here in your Layers panel. 30 00:02:11,060 --> 00:02:12,610 See where it says, create new layer? 31 00:02:12,610 --> 00:02:13,110 And click. 32 00:02:14,620 --> 00:02:16,970 And it will create a new layer for you. 33 00:02:16,970 --> 00:02:21,310 And I held it down a little too long, so it created two new layers. 34 00:02:21,310 --> 00:02:24,160 Which is fine, cuz I can show you how to delete a layer. 35 00:02:25,170 --> 00:02:28,430 To delete a layer, you click and hold, and 36 00:02:28,430 --> 00:02:30,420 then drag it down to this little trash can. 37 00:02:31,490 --> 00:02:31,990 And that's it. 38 00:02:33,760 --> 00:02:34,550 So we're ready to go. 39 00:02:34,550 --> 00:02:36,820 In the next step, 40 00:02:36,820 --> 00:02:42,430 we will be beginning to design our mobile wire frame, see you there.
