Angry Autotrace and layers


I am ripping my hair out on this..

I was hoping someone could help me.

I have a black and white drawing as jpeg. I have used autotrace and it works perfectly.

The problem I have is that the image is in many many layers. All I want is one layer. But I cannot find a way that will do this satisfactorily.

Really appreciate anyones help

Default Re: Autotrace and layers

I doubt if there is more than one layer. What autotrace does is create many separate vector objects. They can be ungrouped if you want to colour separate parts of the traced image.
