Add annotation via Layers panel

Selecting the exact layer I want to annotate using the annotation tool is hard when I have nested layers with no padding. The annotation is good at selecting child layers, but quite terrible at selecting its parent layers.

A possible solution would be to allow users to annotate layers via the Layers panel, simply by adding an “annotate” option to a selected layer’s context menu.


Hey @thisisfranciswu, this is a great feedback thank you for taking your time to create this post! I’ve shared this internally with the team for consideration.

Thank you,

Completely agree! or even to have a shortcut to move between layers. It’s getting very annoying to select parent layers for our Component library.

I second this. There is currently no way to select the specific layer you want to annotate.

Right click on the layer in dev mode
