What you are going to learn in this tutorial
- Create, Rename, and Rearrange layers in draw.io
- Insert an image to use it as a template and rebuild the diagram in a top layer
- View, Hide, and Lock specific layers
- Delete layers
Building your diagram by using layers allows you a lot more flexibility – you can switch between different views of your diagram, group related elements and protect them from being modified when you work in a different layer.
You can display all of the layers at once, or switch them off individually – they are still in your diagram, just hidden. In this exercise, you’ll create a diagram in a top layer, following an image ‘template’ that you paste into the background layer.
