Move to Another Layer

The Home | Clipboard | Move to Another Layer command moves all selected objects from the active layer to another layer of the map. The objects are copied to the same position in the destination layer as they are in the existing layer. After the command is clicked, the Move to Layer dialog appears allowing you to choose the destination layer. The Move to Another Layer command can also be selected in the context menu after right-clicking on the selected object(s).
