Thanks for your replies, I really appreciate it!
I'm currently working on a dress up game, each item need corresponding info box with a mix of sprites, text boxes, links, text input,...
That results in 24 different boxes on 24 layers, but the user will interpret it as one since they have the exact same placement and there's only one visible at any time.
So, I figured out making a template layer with background image, border,... was the best way to do it, and duplicate it 23 times to maintain the x&y-coordinates. I still think it's a good idea;)
Now I have to copy, paste and place each element on a new layer - it's both tedious and time consuming.
Unless you guys have a solution I haven't thought of?
