Summary0007067: Layers of current document and newly imported page are mingled
DescriptionWhen I import a page with several layers into a document that already has (differently named) layers, objects of the imported page are distributed across various layers of the orginal document. The layers of the imported document are shown in the 'layers' dialog box, too, but they are mostly empty.
The objects from the orig. doc. are on the correct layers.

Example setup of layers:

orig. doc. (3 layers):
 "Images" image a, b
 "Text" text a, b
 "Background" path a, image c

imported page:
 "personal images" image 1, 2, 3
 "questionnaire" text 1, 2
 "general image" image 4
 "Back" image 5, path 1

after importing:
 personal images empty
 Images image a, b
 Text image 1, 2, 3 text a, b
 Questionnaire image 5, path 1
 general image text 1, 2
 Background path a, image c
Steps To Reproduce- open attached document
- import both pages from the file in 0007066 and attach them to the end
Additional InformationA good solution in my opinion would be to allow for a completely individual setup of layers on each page (or double page, respectively). Each page would have its own "stack" of layers, and the individual layers of several pages could be linked in some way (so they can be edited together).
