How to show/hide multiple Layers?

Post by MatthiasHecht » Wed Aug 14, 2019 9:40 am

Hello,

we worke PDFs which can include hunderts of Layers.
-> How can we show/hide multiple Layers?

Show/hide of only (!) one Layer works.

But what needed is:
> mark multiple Layers (see Screenshot)
> klick at the lamp infront of one of those Layer
> all Layer should switch from show to hide or vice versa.

Thank you
Matthias

Hello,

I have created a formal feature request for this function, I cannot speak for when it will be implemented, as we are in the finishing stages of the current release however I can say it is unlikely to come in the next few weeks.

For reference, you can ask any member of our support team for the following ticket number:
RT#4874: Show/Hide Multiple layers

Hello Daniel,

a "show/hide multiple Layers" feature is in version 8.0.336.0 not included. We sill have too show/hide every single layer.

Please "refresh" the feature request. It would be helpfull for our work.

Thank you!
Matthias

Hi, MatthiasHecht

Thank you for the followup, This ticket has now been assigned a developer and should be seeing action in the future. Unfortunately I still cannot provide a timeline as it appears this is a "low priority" item. We simply have not seen enough user demand for this compared to other features.

Kind regards,
