Assigning Comments to Layers

Comments can be assigned to a specific layer in the document. When the comment is associated with a layer showing or hiding the layer also affects the comments. You can edit the annotation properties to move comments to a new layer. Comments that are associated with No Layer will be a part of the primary PDF content.

Moving Comments to a New Layer

Existing comments can be moved to a new layer using the properties dialog

  1. Access the Comment properties by right clicking (Mac: Ctrl + Click) on the annotation and choosing Properties in the mouse menu or clicking on the edit button on the Mini Toolbar.
  2. Go to the General tab
  3. In the Layer option, select the layer you wish to move the annotation to
  4. Click OK to apply the changes

Note: If the layer selected is currently hidden the annotation will disappear until the layer is displayed again.
