Prevent Layer Panel from Collapsing?

Jan 31, 2013 7:44 AM

Tags: #indesign #layers_panel

Greetings,

 

I'm submitting this post because I've come to a point of frustration with indesign.  Being that I'm mostly a photoshop designer I rely heavily on layers and using layers effectively.  The problem seems to be that everytime I open indesign, paste a new document, or generally do much of anything and then go back to the layer panel to select another layer I find that it's been conveniently collapsed for me.

 

Is there a way to force the panel to remain uncollapsed rather than (in)conveniently collapsing all layers?

 

Thanks!

    If there is I don't know it and I'd find it useful myself.

    Uncheck Autocollapse Panels in the Interface section of your prefs.

    Sorry. Misunderstood your complaint. I do NOT see that behavior, here, at least not while working in the same file. Are you seeing that, or only when you move from file to file?

    You can try trashing the prefs, but I don't think it will help. I see layers collapse when I move from file to file, but not as long as I remain in the same file.
