The Layer Assistant was recently integrated into the Presentation Assistant 
(v.3), offering the following capabilities:

-- Text/Symbol Layer shortcuts
Add the specified string, associated with a layer (with control over font, 
size and color; horizontal/vertical location adjustment)

-- Shape Layer shortcuts
(rectangle, rounded rectangle, shaded rectangle and circle; can control 
fill/border color, line width)
* optionally also create a link that toggles layer visibility
* optionally specify that the shape border is visible at all times, 
regardless of the layer and its visibility

-- Image Layer shortcuts
Include JPEG images as a layer
(this may also be used to set a non-printing page background tint to reduce 
screen glare, or for navigation buttons)

-- Underline/Strikethrough Layer shortcuts

-- Layers can be created from FM content (text / graphics) based on RGB 
color composition
(this does not require hypertext markers)

-- Layer visibility links/bookmarks:
(show layer; hide layer, show layer only, toggle layer, show next/previous 
layer, show all layers, hide all layers)

-- Specific layers can be set as initially hidden or as non-printing 
(through the settings files or through shortcuts)

-- Support for transparency of shapes and JPEG images
