Working with layers
To add and place an object in the layer, make sure that before you create the object, you have selected the layer for that object.
For example, suppose that I wanted to draw a circle inside a named layer Small Circles Make sure the object layer is selected before drawing.
If you created an object with the wrong layer, you can place the created element in another layer.
Just select the object, select the layer you want to add to that object, then press ESC key.
