Viewing PDF layers on a tablet

Does anyone know if it's possible to view layers of a PDF file on my tablet.  These files worked on a laptop but I cannot figure out how to select layers when I open the file in Adobe on my tablet.  It seems there is no option for it.

You were given the correct answer. The Mobile Acrobat Reader doesn't support any “layers” (actually OCGs in PDF standards parlance) operations at this time.

 

If you need such support, you really need Adobe Acrobat Reader or Adobe Acrobat on a system running either Windows or MacOS.

Hi @Karen28527331xvox,

 

Hope you are doing well. 

 

The feature to view layers on PDF is available only on the desktop version of the application. 

 

We would be pleased to hear more about it on our feedback form: https://acrobat.uservoice.com/

 

-Souvik.
