Active Drawing Layer

By default, the page and pasteboard are the active drawing layer. The active drawing layer is where an object is drawn on the top of the active drawing layer's stack. When selecting objects with the Object tool or text with the Text tool, only objects and text on the active drawing layer may be selected. When importing or pasting objects, the objects are placed on the top of the active drawing layer's stack.

To set the active drawing layer with the Layers Palette: Choose Show Layer Palette from the Window menu. The Layers Palette will appear. Click in the far left column of the layer to make the active drawing layer.

To select an object on a layer: Make the layer that the object belongs to the active drawing layer. Select the Object tool. Select the object. That object may then be moved, rotated, the line & fill changed, deleted, or any other modification possible for the object.

Make the layer that the object is be moved into, the active drawing layer. Choose Paste from the Edit menu.
