Hi,

I'm wondering if anyone knows of an easy way to see what layers in Illustrator have effects or other illustrator specific things on them?

 

In AE, there's always a little FX symbol within the timeline so you can easily see which layers have effects. There's also the UU shortcut which will show any properties that have been adjusted.

 

With AI I feel like I have to click on each layer, look at the appearance panel and individually see if any layer has an effect on it, which is pretty annoying. I use Overlord to import things into AE, so any effects or things like blends don't transfer over and I need to prep those elements ahead of time so I can add those effects and things back in when they're in AE.

 

Anyone know if there are easy ways to navigate the AI layers panel so I can easily find all layers with the AI specific properties?

Grey filled target circles to the right of the Layer names in the Layers palette indicate that one or a couple of appearance attributes (e.g. effects) are applied at the layer level.
