In our schematic drawings, we use a hidden line type to show field wiring. Is there a way to change the appearance of my lines after I create my many layers in "Create/Edit Line Type"?
Solved! Go to Solution.
have you ever worked with the layer manager? You can edit line types associated with a layer and you can then export your layer configuration to a .LAS file. This file can be imported into other drawings and you can restore layers and linetypes from it. We have multiple .LAS files with different layer/linetype configurations. These different configurations are for Panel Layouts, Assembly Details, Plant Layouts and etc....
Otherwise, you can write a lisp routine to create your linetypes and associated layers as you need.
No, I haven't used Layer Manager at all. I thought I would type it in to the Help menu and find all the info I needed. But when I did, nothing related to the actual manager is listed? Where would I look to find this info?
Have you tried opening the layer manager and clicking on the 'HELP' button there? It should take you straight to the relevent entry in the ACAD help file.
Just in case you are not sure how to access the layer properties manager, you can simply type layer on the command line and press enter. Or you can click on the icon that looks a lot like the attached image.
Thank you guys for the help. I feel a bit foolish because I was really complicating this. I thought layer manager was different from layer properties manager and indeed, I was not able to find it. I have figured it out! Sometimes the solution is so simple...
