You can move or copy selected objects to a new layer. To do so, you must be in Layer Manager view.
When you move or copy an object to a layer below its current layer, the object becomes the top object on its new layer. Similarly, when you move or copy an object to a layer above its current layer, the object becomes the bottom object.
To move or copy an object to another layer in Layer Manager view

2 In the Object Manager Docker, click Move To Layer or Copy To Layer on the flyout.
A large black arrow appears.

To move an object to another layer using the mouse in any view
• Select the object with the Pick tool and drag to a new layer.
• You can only use the Move To Layer and Copy To Layer commands when you are in Layer Manager view. In all other views, these commands are disabled. To move or copy objects in any other view, use the mouse.
• In Layer Manager view, you can right-click in a white space in the Object Manager to access the Move To Layer and Copy To Layer commands. When using these commands, remember which layer you are moving or copying from.
• You can hold down CTRL to select multiple objects or SHIFT to select a series of objects.
