I have an illustrator CS4 file that has a character created on a single layer. Within that layer are many sub-layers, all with specific naming conventions. For instance, there is a layer titled head, and within head are eyes nose mouth etc. When I copy, and paste it into another document all my layer information is destroyed. Any ideas?
In the target document, check "Paste remembers layers" in the layers panel.
Worked perfectly. Thanks Doug! Now I can go back to being productive.
