Viewing and Hiding Layers

If a model contains layers that were created in SketchUp, you can view those layers in SketchUp Viewer. (For an introduction to layers in SketchUp, see Controlling Visibility with Layers in the SketchUp area of the Help Center.)

In SketchUp Viewer, you access a model’s layers as follows:

  1. Click the Main Menu icon ().
  2. Click the Layers icon (), and the Layers tab appears, as shown in the following figure.

The Eye icon () next to a layer name indicates that the layer is visible. Click the Eye icon to toggle the layer’s visibility.

To navigate through the list of layers, click the up or down arrow on the right. Or use the trackpad to scroll through the list.
