What Are Layers in OpenOffice Draw?

A

Layers in OpenOffice Draw allows you to divide drawing objects into groups so that you can hide or lock all objects in specific groups. Each object group is called a layer in OpenOffice Draw.

By default, OpenOffice Draw provides you 3 layers: Layout, Controls, and Demension Lines.

When you start OpenOffice Draw, the "Layout" layer is open and all new objects are added to the "Layout" layer.

Each layer has 3 flags to control it behavior:

  • Visible - If true, all objects in the layer are visible in the display. Set it to false, if you want to hide all objects in the layer so that you can focus on other objects.
  • Printable - If true, all objects in this layer are included in the print function. Set it to false, if the layer holds supporting objects like dimension lines which should excluded in the printed version.
  • Locked - If true, all objects in this layer are locked from editing. This is useful to preventing those object being selected or changed.
