Layer Show/Hide

Objects with closed layers do not appear on the drawing screen. Only the wanted layers can be worked on by keeping the layers to be worked on and closing the other layers. In this case, the confusion that may be caused by objects belonging to other existing layers in the project is prevented.

Layer on/off can be done from the layer settings dialog. The table below shows the representations of the layers in open and closed states.
