Hi rossh. Thank you for the suggestion, there is currently a way to move objects onto a different layer in the same position. 1) Select the object (or group of objects) 2) Go Edit > Move - A dialog appears 3) Select Relative in the 'To-coordinates' section 4) Keep the coordinates at 0 - 0 5) Tick 'move a copy' if you want a copy or leave it blank to move the original 6) Select the Layer you want to move the object to via the Layer pop up 7) Click OK and the object will have moved to the desired Layer. Thanks! We will pass your suggestions onto the Dev team and see what we might be able to implement in a future release
I'm trying to follow these instructions, but you seem to have skipped something -- or I'm just clueless. In step 7 you say to select a layer, but the Move dialog is still open so the Layers palette is not responsive. So how do I get to the Layers palette from that point?
Okay, 7 weeks without an answer, so I'll answer it myself. I was trying to get to the Layers palette because the Move palette's Layers dropdown only listed the layer I was already on, the one I was trying to Move from. But somewhere during the last 7 weeks, I noticed other layers listed there and worked out that any layer which I had previously set to be visible in the Layers palette would also be listed as a Move target in the move palette. Case closed.
