The AxiDraw layer-numbering syntax, as described in the user guide, shows you how to print only one layer (or a set of layers) in your document, by numbering your layer names. However, there are additional parameters that can be controlled through the layer name. You can use properly formatted codes to specify the pen-down height and the speed for printing that layer alone. There are also special codes that can introduce a delay while plotting, force a programmatic pause (an operation that halts plotting -- not simply a delay), or label a layer as one that should not be plotted.  These features are always active, and can be used (for example) whether plotting from the Plot or Layers tab of AxiDraw Control.

When printing multiple layers, layers print in the order from lowest to highest. You can preview the layers within Inkscape using the Layers panel, accessible from the menu at '''Layer > Layers...'''. Layers can be hidden, and only visible layers will be printed.
