I have been having problems when using the very logical and consistent Change Layer tool on ordinary geometry elements in the model. However, when using it to move a component to a different layer than the one it was placed on I get a popup asking if I want to change the component definition and all instances or create a new component. This appears illogical. I am not in the component edit mode. I am only trying to move a component on Layer 2 for instance to layer 5. this seems very easy and consistent. Is there a way to do this now that I have not found. If not could a change component instance tool be added that would keying edits of all of a components attribute values. For a component instance this would include the component name. Layer placed on, and the transform, rotation, and scale x,y &z values.
I know I can work around this by deleting and placing another instance on the correct layer but resetting all the attribute data when only one is changing is frustrating.
