What’s New in Layer: April 2022

When selecting an element in drawing view or a related elements field, you’ve had the ability to create elements by clicking the plus button. Now you can also create an element with the name you have typed in your search field to quickly create specifically named elements in these contexts.

This option displays below the search results.

When deleting a Related Elements field, we will now also delete fields dependent on the Related Elements field. A warning will show before this deletion occurs.

3. Added ability to upload multiple photos at a time in the iOS app

When adding files to a project in the iOS app, you can now select multiple photos at a time from your Camera Roll.
