Layout Layer Property Sheet

accepted

#1

Introduction
Currently if you have several layers one on top of another it is difficult to edit the lower layers.
The property sheet would be similar to the layers window in Photoshop, but not much simpler.
It would list your layers in order and allow you to select which layer to edit.

Status
Working fine, but things could be smoother.

User Story
I’ve found that if I have several layers one on top of another it is difficult to edit the lower layers.
Also that sometimes it would be useful to change the layer order after the fact.
Currently if I need to change a layer order it is best to start over or destroy some of the layers.

Implementation
This would hopefully be leveraging the current data in the database.
It would require a change to the layout Web GUI

Effected Software
This should only effect the server-side of the Xibo software unless as long as the database has a layout layer order. Otherwise the layout layer order would need to be known by the client players also.

DB Schema Changes
May need to add a column or associated table to record layout layer order if this schema property does not exist.
