Adding a Layer
You can add a layer
You can also add a KML file as a layer. Please refer to KML Import for more information.
Duplicating a layer or measurement
You can duplicate a layer or measurement from Layer Manager:
- Right-click on the layer or measurement in Layer Manager
- Select Duplicate or Ctrl/Cmd D.
The layer or measurement is copied at the same layer level as the original.
You can also duplicate a measurement by right-clicking directly on the map.
Selecting multiple layers or measurements
To select multiple objects:
- In Layer Manager, hold the SHIFT key on the keyboard and click on the layers or measurement that you wish to select.
- You can also select measurements by SHIFT-clicking directly on the map.
Deleting a layer or measurement
Showing and hiding layers and measurements
You can control which of your drawn measurements display on the map in any of the following ways:
- Right-click the layer or measurement and select Show/Hide.
- With the layer or measurement selected, press Ctrl SHIFT/Cmd H.
Adding new layers and measurements to a layer
There are several ways to add objects to an existing layer:
Moving a layer or measurement to another layer
You can move layers and measurements from one layer to another. Select one or Shift-select multiple objects and drag to the desired layer.
Grouping/Ungrouping layers or measurements
Grouping layers can be really handy, for example, if want to be able to move multiple items at once.
You can group or ungroup layers and measurements using either of the methods below (remember to hold down the SHIFT key when selecting multiple objects, whether in Layer Manager or on the map).
Either from Layer Manager or directly on the map:
Select the layers/measurements you want to group, right-click and select Group or Ungroup .
You can next layers within layers by dragging the layer to beneath the destination layer. You'll see a blue underline indicating that this is the parent layer. Drop it here.
You can't nest measurements within measurements. If you want to nest a measurement, first put it in a layer.
