Possible to name layers? (for when thumbnail images are too faint to differentiate from other layers

I just recently discovered Adobe Fresco and love it so far.

 

A question for others who create different layers for sketches before doing final inking: I sometimes find it difficult to differentiate the layer thumbnails, especially when the layer only contains a faint sketch outline. I tend to use a lot of layers, and find it a pain to have to open up the various layers to remind myself of the contents. In Procreate, I can name layers but as far as I can tell, there doesn't seem to be  way of naming layers in Fresco.

 

Has anyone else experienced this? If so, what is your workaround?

 

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

 

Debbie

Hi Debbie, I have good news and bad news. The good news is, you can indeed name your layers. Just tap the Layer Properties icon in the toolbar. The bad news is, there's no option to show the layer names in the Layers Panel. The layer names would carry over to Photoshop, so if you opened a file there you'd see it, but in Fresco, there's no expanded Layers view:

What the point of naming layers if there is no way to see the names? I don't mean to be derogatory. Is there some other use for layer names? I used them in Sketch to make it easier to differnetiate the layers more easily since the thumbnails are necessarily small.

I too would like to see layer names added to the thumbnails. Thank you for all you do. I love the Adobe Suite and Fresco.
