What is called "layer" in Draw is not that, what you know as "layer" in other applications. A "layer" in Draw is a sort of grouping. We have already considered to rename it to "collection".

Objects, which have the same "layer" (which belong to the same "collection"), are treated the same in regard to the settings visible/printable/protected/.

Use cases e.g.:
Measure your objects by dimension lines, but do not print the measure lines.
Put the grid of a coordinate system on one layer and protect this layer, so that you do not accidentally move the grid.
Make a floor plan of your apartment and put the furniture on one layer and the electrical installation on a different layer, so that you can hide or show them as needed.
