Tip Tuesday - Raven Smart Layers

Our online vector editor (Raven) has smart layers which allow you to create, edit and mix resources from our other apps on the fly. Raven's Smart Layers have similar functionality to Phoenix Smart Layers, but the workflow is slightly different. There are two ways to create Smart Layers in Raven. The first is to add a blank Smart layer by using either the New Phoenix Layer or New Peacock Layer from the Layers option menu. The second method is to push an existing path to the secondary app. To use this method, you must first convert the shape/path to a bitmap. Then use the Edit with Phoenix or Edit with Peacock commands found within the layers option menu.

Hint: If your Smart Layer does not automatically update when you switch back to Raven, try moving the layer. This will force the layer to update.
