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 probably isn’t a high priority. However, for anyone who has worked on a project with a huge library of layers, you can appreciate the importance of layer naming, layer grouping, and use of visual organization. If you rename layers, you can easily identify and keep track of them.
Renaming a layer in Sketchbook Pro for desktop
To rename a layer:
- In the Layer Editor, select the layer.
- Do either of the following:
tap-hold , flick , and change the name.
tap and select Rename.
TIP: If you don’t want to see the layer image as the layer thumbnail, remove the check mark next to Show me what is on this layer. You can use text, such as SCENE 1, by writing or typing a label.
Renaming a layer in Sketchbook for mobile devices
WARNING: Autodesk Sketchbook doesn’t have a Rename feature on mobile devices, since the layers are a different configuration and too small for labels.
