i wanted to open the “Layer Setup” box in Version 5.1.2 for changeing from 2 to 4 Layer. As mentioned in
other tuturials/topics, there shuld be the Layer setup where the red arrow in the picture
can be found
In my version there is no Layer Setup. Where can I find it?
Thanks for helping.

There’s only a
blue arrow in the picture, and the layer setup is approximately there (inside the Board Setup dialog). Or File -> Board Setup.

The quite very common way these days is to use the top node as basic/default settings tab.
Sub-levels contain additional ‘advanced’ or more in detail set up parameters.
