Copy a layer

Sometimes, you may want to use the same data in your map but style it differently. You can make a copy of any layer in the map and style it as desired.

  1. In the Contents pane, choose the layer you want to copy.
  2. Press the Copy layer button (Copy layer button) to create a copy of the selected layer.

    The new layer appears at the top of the layer list in the Contents pane. The new layer is named using the same name as that of the original layer, with the text "Copy" appended to it.

    You can rename the new layer and style it as desired.
