Layers provide a way to control the display of elements on a drawing sheet in SmartSketch Drawing Editor. There are three different places in drawings that affect the layer settings: the label templates folder, the dimension templates folder, and the graphic rule interface inside the software.
By default, all objects in a drawing reside in the default view layer.
To alter in which layer the labels display, see Modify the Label Template Layer.
To alter in which layer the dimensions display, see Modify the Dimension Template Layer.
The settings listed above determine which objects from certain templates display in non-default layers in the drawing view. As a drawings administrator, you might want to pre-define layers in the delivered view template for ease of use and export. For more information and an example workflow, see Pre-Define Layers in Delivered View Template in the SmartSketch Drawing Editor Help.
