  • setting colors for a "Gradient Layer" needs to be explained or at least a hint to use the link to the Gradient Tool would be helpful. --Ohoservices 22:30, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
  • add Navigation at the end as well... --Ohoservices 22:30, 16 May 2010 (UTC)


  • The doc says: "The key point is that a layer can only modify the data that it gets from directly below it." This may convey to the reader that a layer modifies only a single layer below it. The word 'directly' may be the culprit here. To clarify what the author says, we could add the following sentence: "A layer modifies the data that it gets from all the layers below it. However, if the layers are encapsulated, the word 'all' here applies to all the layers within the encapsulation only." --Ghd 05:01, 4 September 2011 (UTC)
    • Would it make more sense to say: "The key point is that a layer can only modify the layers and groups below it, and only inside it's own group." Saying that a layer can "modify the data that it gets" adds to the complexity of the statement. Although maybe technically the modification layer is recieving the data from the layers below, as far as the end user is concerned, the modification layer is affecting the layers below.
