You will learn how to:


Create and edit vector layers


To create a new vector layer left-click on the Add button in the Workspace panel on the left. To select the layer left-click on it's name in the Workspace panel on the left.


To change a vector layer name select it in the Workspace panel on the left, open Properties panel on the right and edit the name.

 

To change vector layer default color (a color applied to new geometries) - select it in the Workspace panel on the left, open Properties panel  on the right and select the color, to apply this color to all geometries inside vector layer click on the Apply to all geometries button.

To prevent potential inconsistency between local and cloud project versions shapes created in the project locally are not accessible in the cloud while the vector layers created in the cloud are not accessible locally because both objects are editable. In case it is needed to use vector layers created in the cloud in Metashape - save it as .geojson file and import into Metashape project.
