Colored Layers in AD and AF

Recommended Posts

You already can. Create the layer, right-click on it in the Layers tab and select Properties from the menu. The colour affects the handles on the canvas, and a strip in the Layers tab; the layer thumbnail and the selection highlight keep their natural colours.

Dave, I use AD trial version and following your suggestion, I can't even see Properties when I right-click on the layer. When I follow your steps, AD lets me rename the layer (is the trial version not a full version?)

 

How do I merge like-colours in AD, any suggestion? Many thanks

This only works on Layers... in your screenshot mockup the things you've highlighted are Groups.

 

Create a New Layer (button bottom right of the Layers panel) and you should see the Properties on the right click / context menu.
