Layers functions

Some more layer functions would be nice, like the ability to name layers [which shape am I looking for again?] and the ability to drag and drop them into the arrangement order you want [instead of just "send to front" and "send to back"].

    Hi everyone,
    Development on an improved Layers Window has started. Reordering layers, locking and more will be available once the development is complete.

    We will keep you updated, thanks for all the votes!

        Sorry for not providing any updates on this one.
        The Layers Window upgrade is in the top of the list, and as soon as we release the feature request that have higher votes, we will get to this one.
        I hope we will be able to provide some type of time prediction soon, but not at the moment.

        I'll keep you updated.

        Be able to arrange layers in layers panel - many times when you say bring to front or back it doesn't do it! Need to be able to edit layer from the layers panel simply like Adobe products.

        Right click object, Arrange, Bring to Front...result: not in front. This happens a lot. Frustrating. While dashing new features are great, they're no substitute for the getting basics right.

        poder mover las capas para arreglar los objetos, poder poner algunos objetos encima de otros, no sé si ya está pero no me funciona o no se como se haga

        I just wanted to let you now that the Layers Window upgrade, has been delayed a bit, because were are currently focusing most efforts on the upcoming Blog release. Hopefully, we will get back to it right afterwards.

        Sorry for the delay, and thanks for the patience.

        PLEASE!!! Layers is the one thing that SLOWS me down and kills the creative process. Need this feature ASAP!!

        This is one of the most important features lacking ATM.
        Being able to right-click to choose layer and "move forward" or "move backwards", and not just "move to back" and "move to front".
        Fumbling around with layers is probably THE one area where I waste most time.

        I think this may be planned, but would like to rearrange layers for the purpose of what gets loaded first, so would obviously like the things at the top loaded before the fold line. and would like everything in order. Everything is all over the place when i look at the page source but I understand this as it's the order you create elements.

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        OMG yes please! That would be great!!! Currently spending so much time trying to get the layers into position. Layer naming and reordering in the 'layer panel' just like on Photoshop would be fantastic.

        Make the Layers Panel more interactive, drag and label, lock like Photoshop etc.

        Hey there, I run into a lot of trouble with layers. It would be nice if you tightened up the functionality of this fundamental capability. For example, if a shape is parallaxed, it won't go to the back. Same for anything that's been pinned in place. An image added into the form container's Thank You section won't go to the back. Makes for a great deal of frustration.

        Excellent idea, it would speed up the process of looking for elements on a page page if we could just name them ourselves

        What is going on with this as to me it is extremely important and as this is a tool for designers I am sure everyone will agree, whats going on with this?

      • ThorstenThorsten commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Webydo is a great tool, but 2 things I miss very much. 1. The layer would have editable names, otherwise you get confused when using many layers. 2. Mouse-over effect for shapes and normal texts missing, for example, simply change the color of a normal shape on mouse over.

        Dragging, yes in favor too (across header, content, and footer sections aswell) but also ability to rename layers and sort layers by name within each section... it's an organizational thing and very important in my book. Appreciate you implementing this ASAP

        Hi, it's been a long time since this feature was listed as planned. What is the status? I agree that more functionality to layers is a must. The ability to name the layers as well as the ability to slide them up and down or delete them from the layers window are some features I would like to see.
