Wix Editor: Using the Layers Panel



The Layers panel clearly lists all of the elements on your page. Depending on the page layout, the panel is divided into the header, main page, and footer, so you can view and select elements to adjust them as needed.


Using the Layers panel


Use the Layers panel to select and manage elements on your site. This is a great way to locate elements, as well as rearrange them to suit your site's structure and alignment.


To use the panel:

  1. Click Layers on the bottom left of the Editor.

  2. Click either Header, Page, or Footer to view the elements in that area.

  3. Locate the relevant element from the list and click it.

  4. Choose what you want to do with the element:

    • Move the element forward / backward:

      • Forward: Select Ctrl + ↑ on your keyboard to move the element forward. (Ctrl + Shift + ↑ if you want to bring it to the front)

      • Backward: Select Ctrl + ↓ on your keyboard to move the element backward, (Ctrl + Shift + ↓ if you want to send it to the back)

    • Customize / adjust the element: Click the element in your Editor, and use the available options to adjust the content, layout, and design.

    • Change the order of elements: Click and drag elements in the panel to change their order. This is a helpful way to ensure that the order in the panel matches the visual order on your site.

 

Working with elements in Dev mode

  4. Choose what you want to do with the element:

    • Temporarily hide an element: Hover over the element in the Layers panel, and click the Hide in Editor icon . You can click the icon again to show the element when needed.

    • Focus on an element: Click the Spotlight icon next to the element you want to focus on to hide all of the other elements on the page. You can turn off Spotlight by clicking the icon again.
