Layer Control for Reference Files

Recommended Posts

I discovered that you can do this in the Layers Palette.  The one problem is that the Layers from the reference file are not differentiated from the file that is referencing them.  Do not do a sort Layers when your reference file is open. Plus if layers have the same names - then you have a problem.

What I would do:

In the reference file, create a layer group named for the reference file an put all reference file layers in that layer group.  Now when you place the reference file, it should place everything neatly in the layer group.  Ideally this could happen automatically whenever placing reference files.  This highlights the need for allowing multiple layers to have the same name when inside of different groups.
