There is a huge difference about targeting and selecting. There is a reason why you have the symbol [target] in the layers panel. For example, you can't apply an attribute at the layer level without targeting it (the layer) in the Layers panel. Selecting a layer is the same as selecting all the objects in the layer, and any attributes then applied will be at the object level. Check it out: Appearance attributes
