Start collaborating with your team and share layers!

Layers has become one of our most popular features. Layers allows Scriptation users to organize their annotations, including highlights, photos, and written notes, into separate displays that can be toggled on and off.

With Shareable Layers, users can now export their annotations and share with other Scriptation users as a Scriptation Layer File (.slf), who can import that file into their own PDF script.

For Scriptation Team and Team Studio users, Live Layers is a powerful new feature which allows users to instantly share layers within their team.

TIP: Even though Exporting Layers is an Industry Pro feature, for a limited time, ALL users can use Export Layers free of charge! And even after the current promotion expires, Scriptation users without a paid license can still receive layers completely free of charge. Layers are only available on the iOS, iPadOS, and macOS versions of the app.

To begin, tap the Layers button to display the Layers menu.



Tap the "**...**" next to the layer you'd like to share, and tap Export.



Now select your method of sharing your .slf file. You can export your Layer file via Mail app, Gmail, AirDrop, as well as many other messaging apps that can have file attachments.



NOTE: When a Layer is shared, only annotations on Native script pages are shared. Annotations on Added Pages, Facing Pages, or Copied/Pasted Pages are not. This restriction allows for the successful sharing of Layers between teams working on the same script, as added pages are personalized to each individual user. Want to share ALL of your notes? Share the file instead.

REMINDER: Exporting Layer files is a Scriptation Industry Pro feature. However, any Scriptation user can receive and open a .slf file.
