Duplicating layers in another file


Please make copying layers in to another file possible.

Now you can only copy entities in another file onto the same layers when the exact same layers are available in that file. And thats only goes for Layout 2016!!! In Layout 2017 it seems impossible all together.
Copying entities into a new, blank file WITH the layer information is impossible.

For example, I had a file that had an error reoccuring. The only way to get rid of it was to copy everything into a new file. But all layer information was lost.


I’m AGREE, I did a similar request recently. That is a huge lack from Layout.


That is why you should set up Layout Templates for your projects. Then your Layer system is standardized on all your documents. Do it once and never have an issue again.
