selective shared layering Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Prev Previous Post   Next Post Next
I have multiple Canvases with some shared layers. What I'd like to do is have all the layers shared and enable/disable them depending on the Canvas.
So, let's say the four layers are L1, L2, L3 and L4 and I have 4 Canvases: C1, C2, C3 and C4.
I'd then like to arrange them as follows:

C1: L1, L2, L3, L4
C2: L1, L3, L4
C3: L1, L2, L4
C4: L1, L4

However, I can't seem to do that. When I share a layer between canvases, whenever I hide the layer in that particular canvas, it hides it in all the other canvases that share the same layer.

To work around this, I had to create a single canvas: C1 (containing non-shared layers L1, L2, L3, L4), then duplicate the canvas to C2, C3 and C4. Since the layers are not shared, I can then selectively enable/disable them.
Of course the problem with this is if I want to make a change to one of the layers it isn't copied across to the other canvases!

I hope I have explained this clearly. Is there a solution to this issue?
