View specific layers in PDFs

Learn how to navigate between Layers in a PDF document

Updated over a week ago

You can view PDF files with multiple layers in Filestage. This can help you display one version with different content instead of uploading multiple file variants. For example, when you have several graphics to choose from for one space or when your content needs review in multiple languages.

Switch between different layers of your PDF's

  1. Open your PDF file that contains layers and switch to high-quality mode.

  2. Open the side panel. If your document contains more than one layer, the Layer tab will be visible.

  3. Switch to the Layer tab. You will see all layers in your file that you can enable or disable.

ℹ️ Please note: By default, all available layers are enabled. This can cause layers to appear cluttered.
