Scrapbook Layer info is being reassigned when importing to a LayOut sheet

When adding items from a scrapbook onto a sheet in LayOut the layer information from the scrapbook items are lost. It would seem that the scrapbook’s layer information should stay intact when pulling onto a LayOut sheet, but the layers are reassigned to match whatever layer is currently highlighted in the Layers side panel.

An option to bring over the layers would help a lot of help for my team’s workflow. Is this not how scrapbooks are supposed to function?

Thanks for any feedback,

Unfortunately mate, scrapbook objects do exactly as you’ve found! They assume (and any embedded layers within a group) the layer they are dragged into! I know, not ideal!

The other option for you if using these objects regularly, set up and save your drawing page as a template with all of these objects / groups arranged around the page in the grey area. They can then be set to layers, or layers in groups and these layers will match your page layers!
