Layer filters are located within the layer manager, they are essentially layer folders! If you have not used them you should learn....... I've been using them way back when rocks were soft!  :smileywink:

 

Problem is if you have a corrupted dwg there are ways of extracting just about anything from the bad dwg into a new dwg except for the layer filters. your essentially SOL!

My question was what did your first post mean?

 

I agree, layer filters are a great tool.

 

I've written programs for our department that creates all of our different templates (including layers & layerfilters) using Excel spreadsheets.

Hi

 

You can add a button to import and export filters with a hack to the registry see the link on my post below
