I've done this before, I just forgot. I have a 2 layer board and I want to increase the number of layers to 6. How do I do that ?
On the Setup Parameters dialog, First Tab. There is the section to add/remove layers to your design.
Thanks , Vern Wnek
Still can’t do it.
I entered 6 in the “Number of physical layers” then hit the “Remap Layers…” button. After I had done that, I got an “Encounted improper argurment” message.
this may be due to the Via definition in the Setup > Setup Parameters > Via Definitions tab.
Check the layer range compared with the stackup. If it's wrong, delete the via and re-define.

This is a bit late but I just ran into the same thing.
In the Stackup Editor in CES you right click on any layer and a menu appears with the options Insert Above and Insert Below. From here you can choose what type of layer you want to insert and other things like that.
Best of Luck!
Update: Turns out this gives an error "Encountered and improper argument" and the changes made to the stackup are not kept.
Update 2: Make sure that your via spans are updated to the correct number of layers.
I did remapping of 8 layers to 2 layers in VX1.1 using Setup Parameters I guess but I do not see any option of Remap Layers in VX 2.1. Kindly let me know how to remap layers in VX2.1 ?
I do not see this option of Remap Layers in General tab. Do I need to acquire any license module for it ? Which document describe these license modules ?
Setup > Setup Parameters, General tab, Remap Layers button
in VX.2 you can only use the stackup editor (Setup > Stackup editor) to change the layer count or move layers around.
