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.
