In order to understand how layers work in website builder WebWave, let's imagine a sandwich with ham and cheese. If we put cheese on the ham, we'll be able to see ham through the cheese holes, but if we put ham on the cheese, we won't be able to see cheese. It works exactly the same in layers. The higher an element on layers list is, the more elements it covers.

Change layer name

Change layers order

Select many layers

 

 

 Layer and element

If you add a new element, website builder WebWave automatically generates its layer. When you select the element, you also select the layer and vice versa. What's also important: deleting the element deletes the layer also. 

 

 

 Change layer name

Default layers names can be misleading, but in WebWave website builder you can freely change them. In order to do it, double click on the name on the layers list and enter a new one.  

 

It is a good practice to match layers names with its functionalities, for example, "offer content", "image of a grumpy cat" or "main menu".

 

 

 Change layers order

To change layers order, drag a layer and drop it in a new place on the list. 

 

 

 

 Hide a layer

In order to hide a layer (and the element), go to the Layers panel and click on the green eye icon. The eye will disappear just like the element on a website.

 

 

 

 Select many layers

To select many layers, press Ctrl and click on them. If you want to select layers in a certain interval, select the first one, press Shift and select the last one. All in between will get marked.
