Illustrator - move an object to another layer

In Adobe Illustrator CS5, if you accidentally created an object in the wrong layer, it is easy to move it:
  1. In the Layers window, find the object you want to move.
  2. Click the object in the Layers window so that a small coloured square appears.
  3. Position the pointer over the small coloured square, click and drag to the destination Layer.

You may find this alternative easier:

  1. Select the object (or objects)
  2. In the Layers window, click to select the destination layer (where you want to move your object(s) to)
  3. Click Object | Arrange | Send To Current Layer
