The basic syntax (again, as described in the user guide) requires only that the layer name begins with an integer in the range of 0 to 1000. Then, by printing from the "Layers" tab in AxiDraw Control, we can select which layer (or set of layers) to print.

We have extended this by detecting that layer-name integer, followed by a specific escape sequence, followed by another integer.  When printing a document where one or more of the layers contain parameters like this, the layer-specified pen-down height or pen-down speed will override the defaults given in the extension, for that layer only.  The escape sequences are not case sensitive. Escape sequences need to be given at the start of a layer or immediately following the layer number or other escape sequences. One exception to this is that whitespace-- one or more spaces at the start of a layer name --  will be ignored. If more than one valid parameter of a given type is found (say, more than one valid speed command for a given layer), only the last one detected will have an effect.
