How can I quickly turn all objects of a layer to independent layers in Illustrator?


Lets suppose I have 10 objects in the root layer of my project named layer 1. Now lets suppose I quickly want to turn all those object as independent separate layers all at the root level. Is selecting individual object and pressing on collect in new layer the only way? Is there a quick method of selecting all the objects and doing something to turn them all into layers at once?

Accepted Answer

In the Layers Panel Menu ...

Release to Layers (Sequence) and Release to Layers (Build)

enter image description here

The difference between the two is the stacking order of the created layers. Sequence creates layers from the bottom up, build does the opposite. (Or vice versa... but that's the basics.)
