How do I move a whole layer in Illustrator CS6?

I've got a project where the same set of paths, all on a same layer, repeat multiple times, forming a sort of spline. Is there any way to select a whole layer, and only that layer, then move it about the canvas?

    In the Layers panel, click on the FAR right-most spot of the Layer to select all elements on that layer (it's just to the right of the target circle).

    In the Layers panel click on the right side of the layer you want to select like this and all the objects on that layer will be selected. Then move as needed. Make sure it is a large stroked square not a small unstroked one.

    Hi Mordy nice to see you around again.

     

    You must have been busy for like three years! Good for you, it is nice to see you back.
