Details

Layer ‘0’ has some special function. E.g. it can not be deleted, it will contain the data of undeleted layers.

I recommend adding some explanations: Explain the function of Layer ‘0’ as third paragraph in chapter 12 of the manual. Further it should be recommended to never use this layer for drawing.

By the way: I consider this to be better than no layer undelete. BUT: is there really not way for a true layer undelete...

This task depends upon

That should not be the case for QCAD 3 RC5 for which this bug was reported.

Can you please double-check if you are using QCAD 3 RC5 (and not QCAD 2.2)?

Further it should be recommended to never use this layer for drawing.

It's fine to draw on layer 0. It cannot be deleted because there has to be at least one layer present (layer 0).

is there really not way for a true layer undelete

QCAD 3 RC5 has true layer and block delete undo (if not it would be a bug).

As I did not find any information why a rename and delete of Layer '0' was not possible I looked in the PDF-manual of release 2.xx. The behavior seemed exactly to be as described there, so I supposed it to still have this task. Please excuse!

But what seems true is, that Layer '0' can not be deleted and not be renamed. If there is really technical need for it, this should be explained - it is quite confusing for new users.
