In my first 3 days of using SketchUp, I made almost every mistake that can be made regarding layers. I thought that everything in an object (group or component), including the geometry, should change layer along with the bounding container. And on that basis, I actually submitted a support request because SU wasn’t behaving the way I believed was intended, and I needed help in getting SU to do as I wanted.
In retrospect, the help SU gave me was BAD support. Instead of questioning my understanding of the intended use of layering, they went ahead and showed me how to get the geometry into my chosen layer, thus causing me to perpetuate my misunderstanding. Since then, I’ve continued building my Tiny Home model, putting everything (container AND geometry) into my intended layer, leaving NOTHING in layer 0.
When other niggling problems crept in - particularly in using solid tools on containers in different layers, I finally read this forum well enough to realize my mistake.
I get it. Layers are for visibility ONLY. All actual geometry should remain on Level 0. Now I’m faced with the tedious task of, one container at a time, editing the container and changing the geometry (but NOT the container) back to level 0.
Anyone have a bright idea on how to do this in bulk? It would save me a LOT of time!
Thanks in advance!
