MaskMask layers hide and reveal portions of linked layers that lie directly beneath the mask layer.
MaskedMasked layers contain elements that can be hidden or revealed by a mask layer.
FolderFolder layers allow you to organize layers.
GuideThere are two types of guide layers: guides and motion guides. Guides help you place and align objects on the Stage, motion guides designate a path that an animated object follows. Guided layers contain objects that follow an animation path. You need to link the guided layer to the motion guide.

Using Guide Layers

Guide layers help you draw and align objects on layers that appear on the Stage. After you create a guide layer, you can align objects on other layers to objects you create on the guide layer. You can make any layer a guide layer. You can also create a motion guide layer to control the movement of objects in a motion tweened animation.

Create a Guide Layer

1. Click the layer you want to convert to a guide layer.

2. Control+click (Mac) or right-click (Win) the selected layer, and then click Guide.

Did You Know?

You can change a guide layer back to a normal layer. Control (Mac) or right-click (Win) the selected layer, and then click Guide.
