Chapter 10. Illustrator's Layers, Sublay... > Targeting Layers, Groups, and Object...

Targeting Layers, Groups, and Objects

Targeting is the designation of a layer, sublayer, group, or object for application of an appearance attribute, including style, effect, and transparency. A targeted layer and all its subordinate elements take on the specific appearance when applied. From that point forward, any element added to that particular layer, sublayer, or group will also assume the attribute. If an object, group, or sublayer is moved from a layer to which an attribute has been targeted, the attribute is left behind, and the element moves to its new layer or sublayer as originally created. Any change to appearance that is applied directly to an individual element remains intact when the element is relocated.

If you're having trouble with the appearance of an object or objects changing when moved from layer to layer, see “Moving a Group or Object Changes Appearance” in the “Troubleshooting” section at the end of this chapter.
