The layer merge command is not working in one particular drawing. But fine in others and new files using the acad.dwt file.
Is there a setting that effects the command that the help does not mention (it doesn't mention any setvars).
Solved! Go to Solution.
Is this the only command from the express tools that doesn't work or do all of the commands from the express tools don't work? You could also check to see if you have either a locked or frozen layers to see if the problem is there.
The problems I've seen recently with LayerMerge not working have been related to locked layers (even if the locked layer isn't one being merged) If any layers are locked, unlock them and try again. If that fails, lock them all, then unlock them all.
I got the Layer Merge command to work. But to be honest I do not know how or why. I had tried different layer settings including Lock and frozen vs thawed, etc.
I even blocked out parts of the drawing and reassembled it to no effect. After a couple of days of doing some manual merging. Isolating a layer cut all objects, and paste on to another layer. Layer merge started working again one day.
Who Knows! Just one of those AutoCAD things
Something in this post jogged a memory.
After working on the drawing for a while laymrg started working out-of-the-blue.
I ran an audit with "fix errors" on my file and that cleared up my problem.
Hope this helps.
