This must be a stupid question, because I’m sure its not an error but intentional.
I just cant figure out how the layers work.
1 - I create a new layer
2 - I create objects on it
3 - later I change my mind and I want to move an object from that layer to another one
4 - so I create a new layer somewhere else in the layer-tree
5 - I select the object, then I select the wanted new layer, right-click + “Change Object Layer” will put the object on the new layer, fine.
6 - but actually the object is still on the original layer also, I didn’t MOVE the object to the new layer but rather COPIED or something like that, I can check this with the little yellow bulbs (toggle-visibility) , if I switch it off on the original layer, the object will disappear. Also, if I want to delete the original layer, it would delete the object also, after a warning of course, but it deletes the object from both layers, it won’t exist anymore on any layer.
Ergo the object has multiple layers the original and the new one too, it belongs to both. This is fine in many cases its very usefull, because I can group the layers by many various way, for example I can disable that object as part of nuts&bolt in general or as part of a specific named gearbox.
But sometimes this behavior is not wanted and I want to move the object indeed, I don’t want multiple layers.
How can I do that ?
Plus question : what does “Copy Objects To Layer” command mean if actually “Change Object Layer” does do the same, it copies object and doesn’t move.
