    Title. Or do only newly built items get added? Thanks!

    To do this you need to go to the Workshop Plus options and have "Auto Change Layers" set to "ON":

    After that you can grab an object in workshop mode and then tab to cancel the move - it will add the object you just grabbed-and-released to your current layer.

    Happy building! :)

    Awesome, thanks! I'll try it out! One more question, how do I delete layers? Once I got to layer 14, I couldn't duplicate layers any more. Thanks again!

    If you go into the Advanced section, put a hotkey on the option to Delete Active Layer:

    It will offer you the options to:

    Cancel
    Delete Items
    Move Items To Another Layer

    The last one is way, way easier than shifting stuff to the default layer individually.
