I am confused about Solids and Layers.
I have been working with Solids that I have created on different layers.
I wanted to take a pair of faces off a solid on (call it) LayerA and use it on LayerB. What is the correct way to do this?
e.g. Can I click Edit Group and click once on the face ==> Control/C ==> go to the layer I want ==> “Paste in Place” ?
The reason why I ask is because although I managed to copy the face and even paste the face, all sorts of weird things started to happen. For example it would be visible when I pasted it but as soon as I clicked on it with the line tool it disappeared. Or on another attempt it appeared as a face with lines around 3 sides but when I tried to draw on the 4th side, nothing happened.
Eventually I copied the entire sold and deleted every face except the face I needed. Having been created in this way it behaved much as expected.
PS I am slightly unclear about how layers work because some parts of a solid seemed to get left behind on the original Layer. Is there any way to make sure all the component parts of a solid arrive in the Layer I want it to?
