Move to layer of choice

I've tried searching to no avail
Another program I have I can move objects from one layer to another simply by invoking a command and selecting Target Layer then the objects.
I'd like to do that with an Alias in Bricscad but can't find a command that will work.
Or if its available in a menu, but work from Alias is preferred

Help is appreciated thanks.
I'm on Version 18.2.14 (x64) revision 54509

  • (defun c:2lay ( / lay ss)
    (setq lay (cdr (assoc 8 (entget (car (entsel "Select object destination layer "))))))
    (prompt "\nSelect objects to change ")
    (setq ss (ssget))
    (command "chprop" ss "" "la" lay "")
    (princ)
    )

  • that is exactly what I am desiring.

    Must be another way

  • What about the "MATCH" command in Bricscad? "MA"

    Ian that also matches, in my case, the text rotation which I want to retain.

    I'm annotating survey plans for titles office.
    Survey notes have bearings to second, survey plan have bearings rounded, same with distances.
    I just copy and paste the 'notes' bearings and paste to where I will show my 'Plan' details.
    Then I manually round according to standards. Not easy to do standard rounding as it is dependant on length of boundary so three different 'roundings' on one plan.
    I want the same bearings and distances but on different layer.

    There's probably another way? Copy to layer. I have that in a GIS graphics package which is briiliant. Select, Right Click, and option 'Copy to Layer' is there
