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

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

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?

The question was only about the default behavior of pasting. But I have talked with Armin about such features as "Mark some objects and send them to a specific layer". That would be indeed a nice feature besides that what will be possible, if switching from layer tab bar to Navigator.

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 is  pasting into a different document. Possible actions

The content of the clipboard is always the same, because the source document does not know, what the user will do with the clipboard content. The target document decides what it takes from the clipboard.

Kind regards
