Scribus > Layout Issues

Copy existing page but have distinct layers.

(1/1)

discord:
Hi,

I copied a page in my "sla". However when I remove a layer it appears to remove the layer on both the copied page and on the original. I wish to have "distinct layers" for the copied page so that I can edit them independently. What am I doing wrong, or how do I achieve this?

toyotadesigner:
Layers are document wide, which makes sense (at least to me). As far as I know (I may be wrong) there is no layout software where you can assign different layers to different pages.

discord:
For my use case working with layers is a difficult pain. I have content from an sla that I want to divide between two pages in the same sla. So naturally I want to copy the existing page. But I want the copied page to have different layer names so I can edit them independently. I am not sure what value a copied page has if you cannot edit the layers between the pages independently.

Nermander:
The OBJECTS on the copied page can of course be edited independently.

And then you can of course create new layers and move those object to these new layers. I am not sure if Scribus has a "move to layer" function, but selecting, cutting, changing layer and pasting back should work.

toyotadesigner:
Select an object -> right click -> send to layer X
