How to use
Select two or more layers and select Separate Shapes from the Plugin menu.
When more than two shapes are selected the bottommost shape will be considered the base shape and every shape on top of the base will be separated, one at a time towards the base shape. That is, the non base shapes will not get seperataded from each other. Inspect the list of layers in the below screenshots, before and after the separation is done, and it might be clear what you can expect the plugin to do.
