Graphic Design Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for professional graphic designers and non-designers trying to do their own graphic design. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have created an image with multiple layers, paint groups, layer groups etc.

The image saves okay as .ai or even export to .png. However when i use the save for web feature my topmost layer group is missing from the image.

The only difference in this layer that I can see from any others, is that instead of the usual 'eye' icon in the layer visibility select, there is a solid rectangle with a border in this place.

Would someone please explain what this icon indicates, how it manipulated and whether it has any bearing on my Save to Web issue.

Many thanks

The solid rectangle rather than and eye icon indicates the layer is set to a Template layer.

Template layers do not print or export.

To remove the template designation, double-click the Layer in the Layer Panel and uncheck "Template".

Thanks, knew I was doing something silly, completely forgot about the double clicking thing. –  HappilyUnstuck Jan 15 '13 at 18:13
