Move Object to Current Layer - Macromedia Freehand

Here's another question. When I select an object, then click on another layer name in the layer panel (FH MX 11, Mac), sometimes the object is moved to that layer, sometimes not. Why is this not consistent?...

    Default Move Object to Current Layer

    layer name in the layer panel (FH MX 11, Mac), sometimes the object is moved

    Are all of the layers in question unlocked?

    I'm still messing with this, and it is frustrating. All I want to do is
    quickly move an object to another layer. The best I have is a 4 step ordeal.
    Select the object, select the layer I want it to go to, pull down the layers
    submenu, and then select move objects to current layer. There has to be a
    simpler way to do this?

    If this preference seems to be changing without your input, you may have a
    corrupted Preferences file. Quit FHMX, delete the Prefs file and reset your
    prefs. It's not a bad idea to save a backup copy when you've got your Prefs
    as you like them.

    My prefs are set correctly. I'll give your suggestion a try. Thanks.
