1 Adding model layers

Open the Edit menu and select Add layer to add an new model layer. Note that model layers can not be removed. It is recommended to use two layers only (layer #1 and #2). Layer frames are arranged side by side by the Tile alternative of the View menu.

Sectors are shown in both layers. Junctions, sources and flow paths are only shown in one of the layer frames.

2 Naming model layers

The Edit menu has the alternative Layer... . This opens a dialog window in which the desired name can be entered. The result may look like the figure below.
