In Draw there are tree standard layers and it is possible to add more of them. Then I do not know how to select all object on a specific layer. Ctrl-A select all object from all the non locked layers but I need to select only the objects from the active layer. Can someone help?

The only way I know: check the "Locked" check box for all layers with elements you do not want to have in your selection before you do <control+a>.

Thank you for the answer. That's bad. It can bee concidered as a bug because it dramatically complicate the work with the layers. To work should be the same as with the Calc sheets (work only on the selected layers/sheets).
