Layer States

Hi Everyone,


Thank you all for all the help you have give me on my previous posts, it is greatly appreciated.


I am not that familiar with Layer States and how you can save them... or change them for that matter.

In the dwg i am currently working on, someone has created a Layer that has all the info on it... But when i click on the Layer Pull-Down menu, i am only able to see the one layer that everything is saved to...

Is there a way i can see all the layers when i click on the Layer Pull-Down menu?


Or is there a better way to navigate between different layers?


I look forward to any help you can give me.

Think of layer state as a restore point.

Some layers Off, some On, Colors, it with a name

then have some more Layers, different colors,   etc........         save it with another name.


Very usefull when you have a project in many phases (Demo, new, addition....)

Go into the layer manager and pick All to show all layers, exit.  Now try the layer pull down you refered to.

If something I wrote can be interpreted two ways, and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, I meant the other one.
