    Default Can't delete layer because of Block-which is used on another layer

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    LT 2009
    "A layer that the block or definition is on will stay "used" until all blocks and their definitions are deleted and purged."

    If I delete the block and the layer on which was used, the block disappears from another layer on which it is used.

    How can I keep the block on layer 'Electrical' while deleting the layer 'Outlets'--the layer on which the block was used?

    Layer Merge, if it is available.

    A selection filter to select all the blocks and assign them to the layer. Then delete the other layer.
