Is there some trick to copying and pasting an object to a different layer? It normally takes me like 3-5 times before it finally works. I copy the object, then select the layer where I want it pasted, paste in place, but oftentimes it ends up on the same layer from which I copied it. Thanks for any suggestions!

Are you definitely using Paste in Place (Shift+Ctrl+V) and not Paste in Front (Ctrl+F) or something else?

I don't have any issue pasting to different layers with the former unless 'Paste Remembers Layers' is ticked.

To confirm what Doug mentioned, it will work (using either Paste in Place or Paste in Front/Back) as you desire IF Paste Remembers layer is unchecked.

In my case, I'm more intereseted in keeping that setting checked as I tend to copy whole chunks of art from one document to another, and I want to keep the layers, so I just do the alernative routine which is do the Paste in Place/Front then immediately move the pasted object to the desired later in the layers panel while it's still highlighted.

It would be nice if there was a key mod to change the behaviour on a case by case basis, but we're not there yet!
