Here's my problem :
my workmates and me are working on seperate files (.ai) for our projects, then, we use to merge our document in one main document to save the final project and to make the exports.
BUT, i found nothing in illustrator or on the web about how merging and keep the structure. And on our project, we have a loooot of layers, and it's barely impossible to copy/paste each layer at once. (i'm sure a bunch of you had this problem once.)
On photoshop, it's quite simple, you can export some layers/group in a new document or in a opened.
So i'd like to know if any of you have a solution (if i'm not understood, i can try to explain better my problem), or if it's a known issue (and if the next version will do it well !!!).
Thanks a lot for any answer that will help me <3
In the Layers Panel menu, select Paste Remembers Layers, this is a toggle for this panel. Now if you copy and paste to a document with this function active, all the layers will be retained.
First check that the layer structure is identical in both files, both the layer options and the layer stacking order.
Now check Paste Remembers Layers in the layers palette.
Then you can copy and paste between files and things will stack into their correct layers.
