Thanks you are SWELLL. I'm cleaning up a bunch of converted stupid archicad dwg's and all of their extra crap and locked layers was getting annoying. I'm using acad 2013 and there is a huge lag whenever I open the layer manager. does anybody know how to fix that?
Instead of using the new Layer Palette, use the command CLASSICLAYER (or set LAERDLGMODE TO 0).
Also, try setting SHOWLAYERUSAGE to 0
What I wanted to say is that the default behavior and settings of the AutoCAD are quite important…and they do save time and effort if they are managed to do so based on the feedback from the users.
Then we need this kind of enhancement to be done to the “Lock” and “Unlock” commands
But then where do they stop? If Autodesk added every single wish from every user, the program would be so bloated and complex, nobody would be able to get anything done.
nestly has the appropriate answer. Spend the time to create the macros you need and you'll only have to do it once and you're set. No more waiting on Autodesk to add in things that you think are missing, etc.
