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. Open the layers pane by going to View > Tabs > Layers on the menu.
  2. Click on the Options button in the top left corner of the layers pane and choose Add Layer
    Layer1
  3. Enter the name for the new layer
    Layer2
  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.
