Show Layers allows you to see any combination of three different layers of objects: Moderator Objects, Participant Objects, and Background Objects.
1. In your notebook, click the View tab at the top of the page.
2. Click the Show Layers icon in the Options section.
3. Moderator Objects, Participant Objects, and Background Objects are all checked by default. Click any of these three options to uncheck them and make them hidden on the panel.
Use Show Layers if something is visibly interfering with what you are trying to accomplish. For example, if your own notes are overlapping with the instructor’s notes (or the panel background is making it difficult to read), uncheck Participant Objects (or Background Objects) to make the instructor’s notes easier to read.
