Empty layers can be created in the Layers panel or from the Layer menu. Layers are created above the currently selected layer. Once created, layers can be renamed for easy identification.
To create a new layer:
Do one of the following:
- From the Layers Panel, click Add Layer.
- From the Layer menu, select New Layer.
With no layers selected, paint on your page with the Paint Brush Tool.
By default, the Assistant will create a new layer to accommodate your paint strokes.
To change a layer name:
- Click the layer's label and type a new name.
