Layers Inspector (left side, each drawing)
EazyDraw has great layers support. Each drawing has its own layers inspector. The layers table view has full cut/copy/paste support -- for the whole layer. Or just drag and drop a layer from one drawing to another, it couldn't be easier. To change a layers position in the drawing order - just click and drag).

Great application for Layers
The layers drawer is very useful for this kind of drawing. The example below has a layer for each level of the house plan.
Layer scope color modification
Apply a global modification to any layer. Blend in a tint, transparency, or both to any layer. Great for tracing or when working on drawings with several layers.
Transparency at individual color level
It is not necessary to use the layer color modification feature to work with transparency. Transparency is supported, individually, for any color used on your drawing. Layer color modification is one more way you can design with transparency (color, patterns, blends, gradient fills, ...).
Fills in EazyDraw may be solid, gradient hatch, or patterns. Both the Styles palette (for solid fills) and the Gradient Fill palette (for gradients) are shown. Color support is seamlessly integrated with OS X, all installed color pickers (standard or third party) are available for use in EazyDraw. The Color wheel picker is shown, with opacity (transparency), and set of user color swatches. Gradients may have unlimited number of transition colors and you may choose from numerous transition models.
Layer Composition Control
You have full control over which layers are shown, their painting order and whether or not elements on the layer are selectable or fixed. You do not need to add complexity to your drawing with masking and transparency layers, opacity and transparency are specified as an integral part of the color definition. But color modification of a layer is possible if needed.
Drag and Drop a Layer
Since each drawing has its own layers drawer, you can simply drag and drop an entire layer from one drawing to another. This is done by clicking and dragging a layer from one layer table to another. You can also drop a layer from the table view to another single layer EazyDraw drawing or even to other OS X applications. In the screen shot shown a PDF version of the layer would be dropped onto the other application.
A specific color model (RGB, CMYK, or Gray Scale) may be applied to all elements on a layer. This is useful when using a single drawing for both a web site (RGB) and perhaps a printed form such as a magazine ad which would require CMYK. After design is complete, simply duplicate the layer and change the color space with the popup shown at the bottom of the Layers Inspector.
