Modifying the Layer of an Item

Available in: FREE, Plus, Pro, Architectural

To change the layer of an entity simply select it so that it's entity handles are displayed. The properties of the entity are displayed in the Properties Explorer, simply  click in the 'layer' field and set the new layer as required.

If multiple entities have been selected then layer field within the Properties Explorer may be blank. This would indicate that the selected entities are stored on a number of different layers, otherwise the field would contain the name of the common layer for all of the selected entities. Simply set the new layer as for a single entity.

Rather than use the Properties Explorer to change the layer of the selected entity it is possible to use the 'layer' field in the Status Bar.  A dialog will be displayed.

Change the layer of an item

This is asking you confirm that you want to change the setting of the highlighted entity to the new setting. Say 'yes' to alter the entity setting, say 'no' to leave the selected entity unchanged.
