Applied Parameters: None


This command is used to quickly move data between the layers of the current document.


This command is accessed from the CAMtastic Editor by choosing the Edit » Layers » Swap Layers Data command from the main menus.


After launching the command, the Swap Layers Data dialog will appear. The dialog presents all currently defined layers in the document, in Before swap and After swap columns. Initially, these columns are identical listings, which means that no movement of data will occur. If you want to move the data from one layer to another, simply identify the source layer in the Before swap column, then in the corresponding row of the After swap column, click within the Layer Name field, and choose the target layer to which the data should be moved. Do this for all layers that you want to move data from.

After the swapping is configured as required, click OK - for each configured swap, the data will be moved from the source layer to the nominated target layer.
