When using the ‘Cylindrical’ isometric tool, the projection does not draw to pre-selected layer in the layer list. This is only achieved when changing the layer in the property editor first. Have not tested this with other projection tools.

This task depends upon

This is intended behavior.

Just like the other modification tools which create copies of existing entities (copy, rotate, mirror, ...), the projection tool also respects and copies the layer of the original entities that are being transformed.

The current layer in the layer list is only used for newly constructed entities which are not a copy or transformation of existing entities.

I see, thanks. Maybe an option to 'Use current layer and attributes' could be added like the other tools?
