When working in Rapid UI mode, you can quickly access the Layer Editor using the trigger‍.

With one hand, tap Trigger icon in the Sketchbook iOS version and drag down to select and hold Layer from the menu that appears. This will open the Layer Editor, which appears along the right of your screen.

While you continue with Layer selected, use your other hand to make changes in the Layer Editor. When you release the Layer menu option with your other hand, the UI will disappear again.
