While you’re long pressing with one hand to move the layer, use your other hand to back out of your current image and open the other project, all the while continuing to long press that layer.
Once you get get the new image open, you’ll be able to drop that still-pressed layer into the stack of the new image.
Thank you for your answer :-) Unfortunately I still can’t make it work.
When I close the project with my other hand I loose the layer. And I’m not able to open another project when still long pressing the screen.
Is there are a special technique for long pressing? And are you supposed to see something when your long pressing the layer?

I had a TON of trouble when first trying drag-and-drop. It is definitely a little bit tricky; and, if you’re anything like me, it takes two hands.
See if these instructions help:
* Tap the layer you want to move.
* Once it’s outlined, press-hold-and drag it to the center of the canvas. NO MATTER WHAT, DO NOT TAKE YOUR FINGER OFF THAT LAYER.
* If you only want to move that one layer, with your other hand, tap "Close" in the upper left nav (still without releasing that layer that you have your finger on).
* If the drawing you want to copy the layer to is in the same project, tap on it. If it’s in another project tap "Close" again to see more of your projects.
* Once you’re in the drawing you want to copy the layer to... THEN release it.
Note: If you want to move other layers, just tap them while continuing to hold on the first one you chose.
Let me know if you’re still having trouble.
Yes!!!! Got it working :-) Very pleased with this update.
It turned out I didn’t install IOS 11.0.3 on my iPadPRO after all. Since I installed the update, it worked just the way you both said it would.
Thanks for your advice :-)
Ahhhhh. I never think to ask about that. I'm glad it's working.
