Is there a way to lock the current layer (to say layer 0) so that is STAYS the current layer regardles of my isolating, turning layers on and off etc?
Really annoying to keep getting those "Are you sure you want to turn off the current layer" messages and it would help prevent me from either drawing thing on a layer I don't intend to, or drawing on a layer which is off (which confuses me every time).
Ummm, is that a 'No there isn't a way'?
May not have explained it right. Can I isolate a layer(s) that is not the current layer and have AutoCAD keep my current layer on/unfrozen also (without having to always select it).
I'm aware the'res probably no solution, but I guess I'm after something that acts almost like a 3rd option on the on/off, frozen/thawed stuff. I turn things on, I turn them off I freeze them or thaw, use isolate or any other command and AutoCAD just 'knows' that I also want layer 0 to remain on, thawed and be the current layer (without asking me about it).
Any help always appreciated.
Look in HELP at the settings for the system variable "EXPERT"
Changing the value for this will reduce the questions for "how much of an idiot" the software assumes you to be
If you set it appropriately, you'll make the messages go away, but it removes the failsafe from doing something stupid (or so the programmers think....)
Best of Luck!
