How to use keyword 'LAYER' in the worksheet editor


I found that there is a keywork ‘LAYER’ in the worksheet editor’s help, I think this keyword is to show the current work layer.

But when I add this keywork in the worksheet template, nothing appeared in this keywork place.

So could anyone tell me how to use this keyword?

A guess???

Anyone familiar with the Chinese? version?

Without testing I would say it refers to the layer where the text item exists on. It’s not meant for the worksheet.

Maybe you misunderstood what I refer to.

The item I refer to predefined keywords in the drawing sheet edotor, which is shown in the below:

I try to place the ‘LAYER’ in the drawing sheet template:

But nothing appeared at that place in the PCB editor:

And when I print the pcb drawing for each layer, there was also nothing at that place, no matter in gerber or in pdf drawing:

So I am very confused how to use the predefined keyword ‘LAYER’ in the drawing sheet editor?

@eelik also replie this message to you.

Sorry, I completely misunderstood your question.

As Eelik mentioned, ${LAYER} is the layer on which the Drawing Sheet exists. It is not a text keyword.
