Easy Tutorial Inkscape - Changing layers

on Thu Aug 11, 2016 9:50 am

Inkscape - Changing layers

Layers - Objects

We could say in Inkscape all the objects are on a different 'layer'.
You can move everything freely above and below each other.

Of course other than this individual selection, you can find the normal 'Layer' option too, which you can lock, unlock, hide, see. Smile
About Objects

- Object/ Raise (shortcut: Page up) - puts the selected object above another object
- Object/ Lower (shortcut: Page down) - puts the selected object below another object
- Object/ Raise to Top (shortcut: Home) - puts the selected object above all the objects
- Object/ Lower to Bottom (shortcut: End) - puts the selected object below all the objects

Tip: Learn the shortcuts, you can work a lot faster if you know them.



About Layers

- You can add several objects to a layer.
- If you lock a layer, its objects cannot be moved anymore. (you can unlock it later)

You can move layers too.
- Layer/ Raise Layer (shortcut: Ctrl+Shift+Page up) - puts the selected layer above another layer
- Layer/ Lower Layer (shortcut:  Ctrl+Shift+Page down) - puts the selected layer below another layer
- Layer/ Layer to Top (shortcut:  Ctrl+Shift+Home) - puts the selected layer above all the layers
- Layer/ Layer to Bottom (shortcut:  Ctrl+Shift+End) - puts the selected layer below all the layers
