Comment 3 Armin Le Grand 2014-05-05 08:40:49 UTC
Looks as if the new created object does not get the layer info copied from the original. It may be worth to test more shape exchanging technics, all converters, also the mergers.
Comment 4 Rainer Bielefeld 2014-05-05 10:21:59 UTC
I wonder whether "Issue 123529 - Copy - Paste inserts shape to wrong layer "Layout" might have a mysterious relation to this one.
Comment 5 SVN Robot 2014-06-24 12:48:21 UTC
"alg" committed SVN revision 1605069 into trunk:
i124816 use correct layer for new object when converting
Comment 6 Armin Le Grand 2014-06-24 13:13:59 UTC
Found and corrected. Also checked mentioned issue 123529, could not reproduce. The question is if the edits there contained conversions (as here) or e.g. also removal of layers.
This one commited, done.
