Copy Paste Layers from one file to another?


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


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




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


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.
