How can I copy a shape from one layer to a new layer? I cannot find any help on this online at all~ Very frustrating. I have a shape on a busy layer that I wish to copy and paste on a newer layer and I do not want to redraw. Help!

Thank you!  I have been googling for weeks to find an answer. I never imagined to go into scissors.

Here is 3 ways to do that:

1. With the Shape Selected > Tap on the Duplicate Icon on the contextual Widget > then head to the layer panel and drag the copy that you just created  to the new layer!

2. With the Shape Selected > Go to edit menu and tap on the copy >  from the layer panel, go to the new layer > Go to edit menu and tap on the paste!

3. With the Shape Selected > Hold the Secondary Touch shourtcut button(the outer ring) and then drag your shape into new position. this will creates a copy  > then head to the layer panel and drag the copy that you just created  to the new layer!
