If we come over to our layers palette, now, we are at the point where we should start to organize our elements bit by bit so it makes the document easy to work with later on. We do currently have our Guides layer on which we are working. You see our red dot is selected hearing, meaning that we have an item already on this layer. We can tell that because the border of the shade is red suggesting it is on this layer.
What we are going to do is we are going to put it into layer one for a second by simply dragging that dot down and dropping it on layer one. Our selection color now changes to blue. What we will do is we will double click here on the name of layer one to bring up the layer options dialog box. Just go ahead and name this tints and bars, anything that we do inside this entire layout, revolving around color bars that go across the screen or items that will be tinted out onto other elements behind, we can organize them all onto this layer in the future. Once you have done that, click OK.
What we will do just to be on the safe side now is we will lock this layer just by clicking right here to toggle the lock for that particular one and then we will create ourselves another new layer, same keyboard shortcut we did early around, Shift command 5 or Shift Ctrl 5 on the PC and we will name this one very simply type. So every type element that we do InDesign is now going to be stored on this layer. When you say OK, it is automatically created above the layer we currently have selected. So at any point, maybe we wanted to go all the Guides behind everything else, we can do that by simply dragging the Guides layer down in the list here until it appears below the tints and bars and you can see that it is easily organized. So it is up to you whether we have them at the top or bottom for now. They are still there. They are still visible or we might want to do just to be on the safe side is also lock the Guides layer so we cannot accidently make any changes on the master page.
