Working with multipul layers

Working with multipul layers

Working with multipul layers

I am working with an image that has several layers both colored and vector shape. This image will eventually be mapped to a 3D model. However I need to have both left side and right side of the image for mapping. I have done all my work on the right side. That also includes the correct orientation on fonts and numbers I will apply for what will eventually be the left side. What I can't seem to do, is with the correct layers set to visible for the left side. I am not able to select all visible layers at the same time for a mirror operation.
Currently I have to merge all visible and save as bmp. Then select the image and copy it to a new raster layer. I then go back to what was my multiple layer image and undo,undo,undo. Set layers for the right side and merge all over again. This is starting to become a great pain. Can anyone offer a way to select all layers that are visible and then mirror and position them as needed.

Thanks inadvance for any help on this.


RE: Working with multipul layers

You can select multiple vectors by holding down the shift key and selecting the individual vectors from the layers window.

A quick way of flipping raster layers would be to do a Ctrl-A to select everything on the image select the first raster layer and then hit Ctrl-M to mirror, now select (in the layers window) the next raster layer and hit ctrl-M and so on.  Finally just select all the vectors using the shift key technique above and hit Ctrl-M.

If you want the right / left side to be in seperate images then first sort out the right image, hit Shift-D (to duplicate the image) and do the flipping stuff above to get your left side...

Hope this is of some vague use!

Hi PetitPal!!

Thanks for the response. I found that by only showing the layers or vectors I want. I can do an Edit Copy Merged. This allows me to then past as a new layer back on to my image. This seems to work well for what I want to do.
Once again thanks for offering advice.
