Chapter 16. Layers > To copy a layer from one document to another:

To copy a layer from one document to another:

1.
Open two documents.

2.
Drag an item from the source document into the target document window. The newly added layer will be placed at the top of the Layers palette in the target document (regardless of its original number), in front of all other layers in that document. The copied item will most likely have a different visual indicator color than it had in the source document, but it will keep its original number (name).

If the source layer name is the same as a layer name in the target document, an asterisk will be added to the name of the layer copy.

If you drag-copy an item from a default layer, it will be placed in front of all the existing items on the default layer in the target document; no layers will be copied.

When you move a layer frontward or backward (upward or downward on the palette, actually), all the items on the layer move to a new stacking position in the document.
