View > Manage Layers

While Layers are most conveniently set, edited, and removed from the controls directly in the Image Processor, this window allows more control over Layer positioning. It also provides a comprehensive management center for your Layers.

Layers are essentially “favorited” recipe steps, which can be overlaid and viewed simultaneously. Any measurements in the recipe will be performed on layers when run in a batch and the result of any “layered” step will be saved and, if applicable, added as a layer to a 3D reconstruction. If there are no layers in a recipe, then any batch measurements, image saves, and reconstruction layers will just come from the last step in the recipe.
