Hide or lock slices

You can hide and lock slice layers just as you would other layers in your document.

NoteNote

While a slice is hidden or locked, it cannot be selected, moved, or modified.

To hide a slice

  1. Expand the Slice Layer in the Layers panel.

  2. Next to the slice that you want to hide, click the Toggle Visibility Cc375004.3e342e41-0093-4150-afc9-309866723da0(en-us,Expression.40).png button. The slice's bounding box disappears from the artboard, and the objects remain so that you can work with them.

    NoteNote

    Any changes you make to the artboard within the slice's bounding box will update what is exported with the slice. For more information, see Change what appears in a slice.

To show a slice

  1. Expand the Slice Layer in the Layers panel.

  2. Next to the slice that you want to show, click the Toggle Visibility Cc375004.a708a6c2-5a11-4137-b962-f33438ecf19a(en-us,Expression.40).png button. The slice's bounding box appears on the artboard.

To lock a slice

You can lock a slice to prevent any changes to the slice properties.

  1. Expand the Slice Layer in the Layers panel.

  2. Next to the slice that you want to lock, click the Toggle Lock Cc375004.b553394b-65c8-4b76-8526-5fdfe68fb2c4(en-us,Expression.40).png button. The slice is locked and cannot be selected, moved, or modified. However, you can change the order of the slice by dragging it under Slice Layer in the Layers panel.

    NoteNote

    Locking a slice does not prevent changes from being made to the objects that the slice contains.

To unlock a slice

  1. Expand the Slice Layer in the Layers panel.

  2. Next to the slice that you want to unlock, click the Toggle Lock Cc375004.bc1d5d9e-0048-4d04-8efe-c9b571f71a64(en-us,Expression.40).png button. The slice becomes unlocked.
