Renaming layers

Jump to Mobile

Whenever you create or duplicate a layer, Sketchbook creates a default name for the new layer. If you typically use just a few layers, layer naming might not be a high priority. 

However if you're working on a project with a huge library of layers, you will appreciate the importance of layer naming, grouping layers, and use of visual organization‍. If you rename layers, you can easily identify and keep track of them.
