What is a layer?
A layer defines what channels should be shown in the mixer. You can create an unlimited number of layers and each layer can contain up to 32 channels.
This view lets you configure all layers
Open from the mixer view:
Menu -> Setup (gear icon) -> Layers
Channels per layer
Selects the number of channels that should be shown in the mixer. This also defines the width of the channel strip shown in the mixer. The more channels you show, the smaller each channel gets.
When you change this number the app can automatically resize each layer to contain the selected number of channels. It will automatically take different channel types into account so you will always end up with a logical layer setup.
If you select
Auto instead of a number the app will always show all channels assigned to a layer. If required the channel strips will be resized so they fit on the screen
The list in the bottom of the screenshot shows all layers.

+ in the menu to add IDCAs or blank items.
Target Mix option allows you to select which mix of a channel you want to add to the layer.
This is useful if you want for example to be able to change an FX send for your main vocals without using sends on faders.
By default the
Any option is selected.
Any will cause the channel to follow the currently selected sends on fader mix (default app behavior). Any other selection will cause all channels added in that mode to be fixed to the selected mix.
In the follwing example I'm adding 3x
Ch 1 but with different target mixes. As you can see in the mixer view, each fader now controls the send level to the selected mix.
