Property Value

True to enable all graphic layers in any mode, false to not


SceneGraph organizes contents into layer 0 and 1. Layer 0 contains general geometry, and layer 1 contains sketch geometry. By default this property is set to false, which means only layer 1 is updated when in edit mode. When this property is set to true, then all layers are updated regardless of mode, including edit mode.
