I'm using Adobe Illustrator CS6.

I've created a Cross using tw rectangles:

It appairs like a two layers:

but I'd like to merge within a single one, so I can easily manage and move across others layers. How can I do it? Tried to select two layers, Layer menu and "Merge selected", but its grayed out, and I can't click.

  • Question : Why do you want to make a unique layer with different objects? I think you bring vices, or kind of, from other programs. Illustrator is not Photoshop – Danielillo Jun 28 '18 at 9:44

  • In Illustrator different objects will always be in different sub-layers with the figure type name.
    • Grouping shapes you will get a unique sub-layer at the working layer with the group composed by two different sub-layers, each one with each shape.
    • Transforming shapes in a Compound Shape, you get a unique sub-layer at the working layer with the compound shape content, composed by two different sub-layers, each one with each shape.
    • Applying Unite Pathfinder to shapes, you get a unique sub-layer at the working layer, but you loose each independent shape.
