Can’t move objects from one layer to another in Sketchup?
Well, you’re not the only one – neither can I.
I tried moving this wall from the Garden Layer to the Ground Floor layer – but when I tried hiding the first layer, the shape still disappeared. As you can see here, it’s the same dark brown as everything else in the Garden layer. But it’s selected, and the info pane for the selected object shows that it’s definitely in the Ground Floor layer.
I’ve also tried copying in one layer, and pasting in the other… also no help. And a few other tricks besides.
However, it’s not impossible – I did successfully move another shape in another layer. It appears to affect just a certain source layer – once it has a hold of those objects, it just won’t let go. Given this is Sketchup 7.1.6087, the latest version, I guess I’ll have to wait for a bugfix.
