on our work to make layers ODF conform, Armin and me decided to identify
the layer to which an objects belong internally no longer by a numeric
ID but by the layer name and to show a display-name to the user. That
gives the opportunity to improve copy&paste behavior.


We plan to keep the layer of the objects, if copy&paste happens on the
same page, see

Do you agree to that?

I have no reason (so far) to choose for one or another. But I do have
related questions:
- Will it be easy (context menu?) to change the layer of an object?
- Will Paste-Special offer the choice of the layer?

We need advise, what should happen, if an object is copy&pasted into a
different page of the same document. In the end of the project it will
be possible, that pages of a document may have different layer-sets.
Similar problem isĀ  pasting into a different document. Possible actions

And the behaviour could be different for the original and the new

a) paste all into the active layer
b) paste objects into that layer, which has the same name, and on the
active layer in case no such layer exists
c) paste objects into that layer, which has the same name, and generate
a new layer in case no such layer exists.
d) others?
