Now that it appears to me that you have found a way to do it ... Allow me to ask a related question:

I use SketchUp a lot. What is called "layers" in SketchUp is not really layers, but distinct sets of 3D objects; you may check off whether one layer (i.e. object set) is to be displayed or not. They are not ordered or hiearchical in any way. In the same (non-modal) dialog box, you also select one active layer, where all your new drawing primitives are added.

My problem: The active layer may change if I breathe too hard. Or when I look in another direction. Or switch another layer on. Or... Sure, the list of actions that actually changes the active layer is not that long, nevertheless I over and over draw to the wrong layer. I have made it a habit whenever I end a working session to display layers one by one, alone, to see if I have put anything into it that should be moved to another layer. Much too often, there is something to move.

You SketchUp users out there (I assume that there are quite a few - SketchUp is great, once you have learned to handle it): Can you provide any helpful hints for how to prevent lines and surfaces and objects to be drawn in the wrong layer? Or do you have the same problem? Or is it just me? (well... most likely it is Smile | :) )
