With the X-ray vision widget we can create and view hidden layers on a page. We are going to set up a page with three hidden layers.
Firstly we go to ‘My media bank’ where we have a set of four human body images which we will add to the page.
Loccking the aspect ratio, we select all layers with the marquee and resize. Separating the images out, we will add labels using the text tool, and group each label with the relevant image.
Starting with the image we want at the bottom, we right-click to view the accelerator menu, select ‘X-ray vision’ and ‘Add to bottom layer’. The object is no longer visible on the page. We go through and apply ‘Add to middle layer’ and ‘Add to bottom layer’ to the other two images.
Selecting all the images using the marquee tool, we top align and left align them, and position on the page.
Now we can use the X-ray vision widget, so we open it from the widget bank, switch Play mode, and move it over the page to reveal the layer below.
To reveal the different layers we click on the up and down arrows. We can also change the shape and size of the widget.
Returning to select mode, if we want to view or edit the hidden layer, we right-click anywhere on the page to open the page accelerator menu, select 'View X-ray layers' and select a layer. We can edit the hidden layer while the pop-up is open - when it is closed the layer will no longer be visible.
