With multiple files open 4 of the 5 buttons of the Layer List Widget are acting on an other file that is open instead of acting on the file in focus.
in this condition only Add Layer YA acts on the file in focus.

Not easy to reproduce.
Encountered it more frequent
after copy with ref and pasting.
with more then 2 files open.
with similar drawing file names.
Did reproduce after several hopping between files.
Usually acts on the first open file but this can be different as in the example.

workarround none; save all; close all; close Qcad; reopen and redo.

This task depends upon

Similar error occured while editing the 'Layer Data' with multiple files open.
The Parent Layer list presented in the dropdown is the layertree of one of the other files in open state.
