Copy Paste Layers from one file to another?


#1

Copying entities from one file to another doesn’t carry the Layer information! This is frustrating. Am I doing something wrong?


#2

How are you copying the entities? Layers should be copied with the groups and components to which they are assigned.


#3

I use CTRL C, CTRL V


#4

Perhaps you could share the LO file with the layers. Let’s see how your model is built.


#5

BTW this is a message I get from Layout:

Entities will be pasted to layer “Default”.

The copied layers do not match the current layers of this document.

My mistake. At first I didn’t catch that this is a Layout thing. Layers don’t get copied in LayOut. Entities will get pasted onto the same layers in the new document only if those layers already exist.
