    Welcome!!!

    If I understand correctly you want to copy and paste the same image on 3 different layers,
    but when you copy and paste the pasted image is not going on a new layer.

    Copy your image lock the layer make a new layer and paste it there,
    if you want it in the same spot you copied it from use CTRL F.
    Then lock that layer create a new layer and paste again.

    Did this help?

    On a Mac...

    select... hold down "command/shift/option" then "drag" to where you need it, then "command>D" to repeat

    should retain your layers...

    I believe it would translate to ctrl/alt/shift on Windows but I'm not 100%

    OK here is one way, drag each layer in the layer dialog box to duplicate layer.
    "Looks like a piece of paper with a folded corner"

    I'll see if I can figure out an easier way.

    and ctrl/alt/shift sounds right

    Okay try...

    Select complete graphic

    double click on "SELECTION TOOL"

    window will pop up, add in specific distances hit "COPY"

    Then hit Command "D"

    In CadTools (hotdoor.com) you have the option of "step and repeat"
    Baaaah, CadTools will not preserve layers

    This will copy all 3 layers and paste them to 3 new layers?
    Is that what command "D" is for?
