For the Have You Tried this month we focused on a sometimes overlooked area: layer management and layer cleanup. When working on older drawing sets or drawings worked on by multiple drafters, problems can occur. Objects might be placed on the wrong layer, layer standards become outdated, and some layers can end up going unused.
In this Have You Tried, we’ll cover:
- Walking through the various layers in a drawing to view what objects are on each layer
- Moving objects from one layer and merging them with another
- Deleting all objects on a layer
- Updating and merging layers based on a layer translation map
Learn how to use various layer tools to manage drawing layers and improve drawing performance with the step-by-step examples in the Have You Tried: Cleaning Up Layers topic.
