Does anyone know of a way to copy just the layer filters from one drawing to another?
We've got a boat load of filters in our template file. But when I created new drawing files using Civil 3D's Plan & Production tool, the layer filters aren't in the new drawings.
I'm not asking for help getting C3D to include the filters when creating the sheets. That would be a question better asked in the C3D board. But now that I've got all these dwg files, I WOULD like to copy the filters in to them.

With straight AutoCad no OOTB commands available to import and export layer filters.
Using C3d or MAP verticals you can do it easily using the LAYERSAVEFILTERTREE and LAYERLOADFILTERTREE commands. It works from version 2012 to present, I don't know if it's available prior to 2012 releases.
I used it to put our layer filters in our dwt's and it worked very well.
Hope this helps.
