In this Tutorial we will be learning how to transfer an object from one layer to another. For you Blender veterans this tutorial is probably trivial, but as a newbie it would have saved me a lot of time.
1) Make sure you are in Object Mode.
2) Make sure the object you want to transfer is selected.
3) Make sure nothing else is selected.
4) Hit the "M" key.
5) A box of layers will appear. Select the layer that you want to transfer to by left clicking on it.
