    odd affi got a reaction from JGD in Layers   
    I am so looking forward to replacing indesign. But I need layers. Without layers it is not a page layout program. What is shown as the layers palette is more of an objects palette. I need to be able to have an active layer that all new objects are put into. Always manually placing all new objects into its layer is a lot of work.

    If I select an object that is manually put into a layer, the layer list expands so I can't see the other layers, and I need to scroll around in a meaningless list of not named objects, instead of looking at my layers. So I can't put my object on another layer because the other layers are not visible. And If I copy or move an object to another page, I will have to make a new layer with the same name and then manually put my object there?  This will newer work in a rational workflow. All my time will be spend fuzzing about with the layer palette instead of page layout work.

    This is done well in other software, so why change it for something that does not work? Please please change this, so that we finally have a viable indesign alternative.
