I have tried everything. Somehow part of my exploded diagram of a base and obelisk got onto a different layer. I have tried selecting the entire object and moving it, and it seems to miss an edge or a face and is on 2 different layers. I tried the object as created and as a group object. Now I cut and paste or go into entity and change the layer and it doesn’t move. It even recreated the layer if I cut the object, delete the layer, and then try to paste in layer0.
What I want is to have the base object in layer 0 and the obelisk it sits on in another layer. I read that these aren’t like CAD layers, but really just choose visibility, which is fine, but I don’t understand it. I have my whole exploded diagram of the base in layer0, and the bottom piece in in the “dimension” layer I created to ultimately hold the dimensions so that I can make them invisible when I want. I don’t know how the base got into another layer and can’t put it back.
