No the default will be to have one layer, named Background, and all 
objects on that layer until you add more layers and select them to work 
with. You can only work with one layer at a time, but the current 
working layer can easily be selected from the widget at bottom mid-page.

This is not true. Instead of the dotted-line border, you will see a 
solid border, which is a dark red, and this is whether or not it is 
selected. It does get a bit tricky if you have given the border a color 
-- there is still a difference, but harder to see.
