Does anyone know how to print a LIST of all the layers. I am not asking how to print the document or the individual layers in a document. I would like to know how to print a LAYER LIST........Anyone?

    Which version of Illustrator are you using?

    No way to have Illustrator do that. Take a Screenshot and print.

    Probably not exactly what you‘re going to do, but in recent versions of Illustrator you may save a copy of the file, delete all objects in that file, then save as .svg.

     

    At the bottom of the SVG Options dialog, click the Show SVG code button and see if that text file is something you can use.

    this script will add a text frame with a list of layer names

     

    var idoc = app.activeDocument;
    var itext = idoc.textFrames.add();
    itext.contents = "";
    var layerCount = idoc.layers.length;
     
    for (i=0; i<layerCount; i++) 
        itext.contents += "Layer " + i  + ": " + idoc.layers[i].name + "\r";
