View Full Version : DW8; Layer window not showing layers

07-16-2007, 12:48 PM
I'm working on a website that uses a lot of layers, but none of the
layers show up in the Layer window. In another website I'm working on,
only one of the layers shows up in the Layer window. Any idea why this
might be and how I can fix it? Thanks!

Edit: OK, I've been playing around with this and when I insert a new layer by going Insert>Layout objects>Layer a new layer appears which shows up in the Layers window. I originally created my layers "by hand" by punching in the div tags, and these layers are not showing up in the Layers window.

you are using a linked css sheet with your layer definitions in?

Thanks for getting back to me - but I worked out what the problem was, in the end. I didn't realise the difference between div and layers: namely that layers have to be fixed on the page! All is just about well now...

Div's can be fixed on the page as well, they're basically the same, 'layers' are absolutely positioned div's.
