I'm new to blender. I'm working with a rigged model that I've downloaded from a sharing site. I'm trying to move the model from one layer to another for compositing purposes. When I attempt to select the rigged character, however, and then move it using the "M" key, only the underlying rig gets moved to the new layer. The mesh is left behind.
When I attempt to select the mesh in object mode, however, I cannot. If I go in to edit mode, however, the layers are no longer available.
