 In any of these cases, there is no good solution other than to restart the project and double check all of these (if possible) before starting to re-process.

 +Sometimes, for reasons unclear, a Gerber file gets automatically assigned to a undesired layer in the LPKF software on the ProtoMat, and cannot be changed. If this happens, what you need to do is highlight all the polygons on that layer in question that were imported, and move them to the correct layer (right click > Move to Layer). Highlighting a whole layer requires playing with the Layers pane on the left, and then click-and-drag across all the polygons. If there are things on that layer that are //​supposed//​ to be there (e.g. you need to move only some of the polygons off the TopLayer layer), it can be worth just starting the process again, and importing the messed up Gerber first.
