I'm attempting to create a layered PDF document to allow individual layers to be turned on and off within Adobe Reader. So far I've been unsuccessful in using the PdfPageLayer class. It appears that the PdfPageLayer is more of a "virtual" concept to allow positioning of graphics on top of each other, but ultimately these layers are flattened and are not recognized as true named layers within Adobe Reader.

Does anyone know of a way that I can create multiple named layers within a PDF document that can be toggled on and off within Adobe Reader?

Hi Mike,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.

I regret to let you know that Currently we have support to create layers in the PDF but we don't have support to layers within a PDF document that can be toggled on and off within Adobe Reader. We have created feature request for PDF layers full support.

Please let us know if you need any further information.
