I would appreciate an option for the library Browser that gives me the possibility to decide by my self to use the current (same name) layer in my drawing or overwrite it with the existing layers in the library item.

Imagine the possibility’s of this feature .... ;-)

This task depends upon

Is that not what the check box "Overwrite Layers" in the options tool bar does?
If not, how should it be different?

That is what I thought, but ....

If I only check "Overwrite Layers" .... it doesn't overwrites any layer.
If I only check "Overwrite Blocks" ..... ditto.

If I check "Overwrite Layers" AND "Overwrite Blocks" it overwrites everything - included elements which are not part of a block.
Actually is that what I'm looking for - but is that the proper way???? If I like do overwrite my existing Layers - why I have to check "Overwrite Blocks". Not everything is part of a Block. Confusing!

Or do I miss something ....

Overwrite layers alone should indeed overwrite the layers. I'm looking into this.
