Q: How can I create a new layer in a PDF document?

A: Creating a new layer can be useful if you want to Add Comments to a Specific Layer on a PDF Document. For example: adding multiple layers of wiring diagrams over a building blueprint where you would create a layer for each type of wiring. Having the wiring on separate layers allows you to hide and show specific layers when reviewing the diagrams.

To add a new layer, follow the steps below:

  1. Access the layers pane by clicking the Layers button on the left side of the screen.
  2. Click on the “Add Layer” icon  in the top left corner of the layers pane

  3. Enter the name for the new layer
  4. Click OK to create the new layer

Note: When adding a layer to a PDF, it will always be placed above all current layers (if any) in the PDF.
