- copy whole drawing to a new, empty document
- in that document, rename 'object1' to 'object2'
- copy entire drawing back into original document
- delete pasted drawing

Layers are not meant for grouping objects - that's what blocks are for.
In your example, I would recommend to have only one layer hierarchy for all objects (e.g. all layers below 'Object1').
Then group each object into a separate block named 'objectX'.
Husky wrote:Hi Cristian,
with the background information from Andrew in mind - how about to create a template layer list to fit your needs?
If you invest the time to pre-design a layer list with - let say - 20 Objects(?) you could use them directly out of the Library. If you then only need 12 Objects - so what - just delete the rest in the list.
Check this out and maybe you can customize it to your needs ...
Or you could also prepare a Drawing Template with the predefined Layer List ......

Can I do that also with blocks?
