Save Layers As Object

I cannot seem to get this to work correctly it is saving only 1 layer at a time, I've 60 layers that need saving and this feature is labour intensive

1. select a layer
2. navigate to the Save Layers As Object
3. repeat 60 times

Is this feature not suppose to save all layers a separate objects with out the need of doing it one at a time

Plus there is no mention of this feature in the 11.XXX manuals

I would think that tool should work as expected, perhaps in the meantime use this if it isn't?

It should be reported as a bug unless that tool is designed to be used differently. I've never had to export layers so couldn't tell ya.

has tool Layers To Objects tool that will split one large object to as many objects as you have layers, 60 in your case.

Save Layers as Object.. tool is saving the all selected layers as SINGLE object. If I will select 2-3 layers from 4 layers object, it'll merge these 2-3 layers and it'll be single lwo file on disk.
It's working as intended but it's not for you.
