# How to copy object(s) to another layer

I am building a model for a game and have decided to copy part of it into a separate layer. How do I copy one or more objects to a different layer?

• It's important to know whether you want to COPY the object or MOVE the object. Your question is a bit confusing. You asked how to COPY, then how to MOVE. Be sure you understand the difference between the two or you'll quickly find yourself confused by having more objects than you intended. The first answer correctly tells you how to COPY the object to a different layer, the second answer tells you how to MOVE the object to a different layer. Not meaning to be critical here, but using the correct terminology helps to clarify your question. – pharm Jun 12 '13 at 17:13

The object will still be selected but if it isn't, you can look in the Outliner for it. It will have the original object name followed by a number indicating that is a duplicate such as Object.001.
