Tile Editor: Layers


A layer consists of a grid into which tiles can be drawn. Each layer can have its own grout width, angle, and grout product. Only tiles that are compatible with the grid size of a particular layer can be drawn on that layer.



Note: Only square and rectangular tiles can be added through the tile editor. For non-rectangular tiles use the Custom Patterns or Quick Tile features.

Layers are made automatically when a Quick Tile pattern is used. They can also be created manually using the Manage Layers tool in the Tile Editor.


Select Tile Layer:

Use this drop down box to select which layer you would like to work on.



Manage Layers:

Use this tool to edit existing layer properties or to add new layers manually. manage_layers.png

Select the layer by clicking on the name so that it is highlighted in blue.

Use the "plus" and "x" buttons to add a layer or delete a selected layer.

Use the up or down arrow to move a selected layer's list position.

Each layer can have its own name, grout, angle, and grout product.


When creating a new layer you will be prompted to define the grid size.

Newly created layers will not contain any tile.
