Maximum number of layers

Recommended Posts

There is no absolute limit to the number of layers you can have. But for large numbers of layers, you may encounter problems. As the number of layers gets larger, it will get more difficult to use the layer popup menu to set the active layer. Also due to a limitation in the Mac OS code for listbox controls, the layer setup dialog will not show all the layers when the number of layers gets too large (this will probably not happen until the number of layers is more than a thousand, and the number of layers at which this occurs will be smaller if the layer names are longer).
