Hi Girvin,

you have sent me a private mail, therefore I answer private too. But that is not good. Please use the mailing list next time.

Yep! My bad. I reflexively used "Reply" instead of "Reply All" and didn't realize it until I already sent the reply. The new list configuration is aggravating. Given how many private replies I am getting since the change, I am not alone in the group. As you hint at, the real problem is deciding if the private reply was really a private reply or just a miss-click like I did with this one. It is an etiquette problem...

Thanks very much for the hint.  I didn't know Draw had layers.  I see
now what you are talking about and I can create additional layers, like
adding sheets to Calc.

Apart from using a "tab" they are totally different.

  I will try that as soon as I can get back to
it.   No matter which layer I select, the same objects are displayed in
the drawing window.  I see I can make layers invisible, but that is
about it.  Is there a way to tell which layer an object is on, other
than trying to select it layer by layer?

Please have a look at chapter 8 "Splitting drawings in multiple layers" in the Draw guide [1], and therein the section "Changing the layer of a drawing object".
I read that section of Chapter 8 last night, just to see if the guide did explain layers. There are two pages referring to layers and that is mostly taken up by figures. I will have to work with Draw to get the feel of how to apply this new layer technique.

I know the guide is not verbose, so don't hesitate to ask again, but please on the list, so that all others can learn from the answers too.


Kind regards
Thanks for your help.
