Using folders in the Layer manager allows you to keep your project organised and curated to your liking. It also allows you to easily hide a group of uploads or markups with one click, making it quick and easy to view only the aspects of the project that you are interested in.


Creating empty folders

  1. Open the Layer manager.

  2. Click the Create empty folder button on the header.

3. If you are in the Uploads tab, this will create a new empty folder.

4. If you are in the Markups tab, you will have the choice to select the folder destination as either "Personal" or "Project".

  • Selecting "Personal" will create a folder that is only visible to you.

  • Selecting "Project" will create a folder that is visible to everyone.

Creating folders with a selection

  1. Open the Layer manager in the right-hand toolbar.

  2. Select items using the check boxes beside each item.

  3. Click on the three-dot menu in the footer (it will appear once a selection has been made).

  4. Choose the option "Create new folder".

Creating subfolders

To create a nested folder structure you can:

  1. Use "Create empty subfolder" in the three-dot menu to create a new folder inside an existing one:

  2. Drag existing folders on top of the folder you want to put it inside;

  3. Use the "Move to" option (also in the folder's three-dot menu) to specify its new location.

N.B. Some things to note when creating folders:

  • Folders can contain uploads or markups but they cannot contain both.

  • If you add your private markups to a project-level folder the markups will become project-level too and so viewable by your colleagues.

  • Folders created with only your personal markups will be personal to you.

  • You can create up to 20 subfolder levels.

  • There are no restrictions on who can create folders with content at the project level.
