  • Default (activity) - New created objects are deposited onto this layer. Only one layer can be defined as the default.

  • Default (annotation) - When creating new Activities, the Activity text is automatically assigned on this layer. If a layer with this option does not exist, the Activity text is placed on the same layer as the Activity.

Layer order

For the display the layers are put on top of each other like transparencies, the upper layer is in the foreground. Using the Move Up and Move Down icons, you can change the order of the table.

To avoid having to re-sort the order of the layers for each cell in each view, use the Synchronize Layers dialog.
