Add Hidden Layer

Its about time you solved for adding a layer that does not populate in every scene and must be manually turned off.

At present we can use Super Section, but that makes a section and a new scene as well. We should be able to do with simply by having the option on the Layer Manager to add a hidden layer.

This might be a nice built-in addition, though there are several layer manipulation plugins/extensions available that already do what you ask. Do a search on any of the plugin source sites.

Layers Panel does it : Extension | SketchUp Extension Warehouse

Hold down click on the “new layer” icon.

Thank you both for your suggestions – I’ll play around with your extension, Jiminy, it looks very useful!

Did you see my other suggestion for an integrated Layer and Scene Manager?
