Planned for Future

Layers in Magic Sheets

As in graphics apps, the ability to make objects unselectable unless on the layer being edited.

  • Or lock individual layers and edit the others.  A hierarchy ol the layers would be great too, i.e. nested.  Maybe a lock on individual items, especially groups.  I could then group items and lock them.  That would be almost as useful as layers.  One problem with groups is reselecting the group items once you ungroup them to edit.  It would be nice to edit the group items only... i.e. drill down into groups instead of having to ungroup to edit.

  • Having said that, we are discussing implementation of layers.    It is a bit lower on the list that a number of other MS improvements that are planned.
