A very important thing to remember with panel layers is that you can't work on them from the main page. Panel layers work much like group layers (discussed in Chapter 6), in which all layers within the panel layer are set to readonly. So what you see on the main page is only a preview of the contents of a panel layer.
It's only when you open the panel layer in its own window that you can do any drawing or editing within it. Once opened, you can work on it just like you would work on the main page, This means you can add and remove image layers, draw your roughs and inks, add screen tones, work with rulers, and so on.
So, before you can do anything with your newly created panel layer, you need to open it up.
