Views, Layers And 3d In Lt?
The features this month are some of those things that are buried more than one level deep or just don`t lend themselves to being the most obvious. For example, creating named views: Check. Naming a UCS position: Maybe. Combining the two: Seriously? Oh, yeah. Then there`s the whole Layer State thing that has now been relegated to a graphic button in AutoCAD 2005/2006, rather than the text `Save State` as in previous versions.
Filters And Settings
In an effort to find a few bright spots in the Layer Properties Manager introduced in AutoCAD 2005, this month I look at a couple workable features in the Filter Tree side of that dialog box. And since very few of us work in a vacuum, somewhere along the line you will receive a drawing using a different plot style table than yours. There`s a very simple solution to that. There`s also a very simple solution to drawing and editing objects without using @distance
Custom Express Tools: Layer Isolate & Layer Unisolate

Lesson 07 - Layers
Use layers to easily organise your drawings. Layers are a way of managing, tidying and also controlling the visual layout of a drawing. A whole section of a drawing can be turned on or off, or simply one aspect can be controlled - text for example. This is all done by using layers within Autocad.
How Do I Reference Specific Layers In Other Drawings?
If you work with very large AutoCAD files, you start to look for ways to help speed things along. With the Partial Open feature that Daniel Gunter mentions, you can limit your work to specific drawing layers and views to reduce the amount of memory needed to work on a file.
Studies have shown that manipulating drawing layers is within the top three most frequently executed command sequences. Over the past couple of releases there have been many improvements to the world of layers, and I want to make sure you`re really getting the most out of this frequently visited realm.
Snap To Extension And Layer States
Learn how to use Snap to Extension, and how to change the layer state from the command line.
Dynamic Block Multiple Insertion Points
This is so excellent! I knew about the ability to assign the Alignment Parameter, but I just learned from Heidi Hewett`s webcast that you can have more than one Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦ and toggle between them with the CTRL key!
