I'm trying to create a layer filter that only shows me Xref layers except for the LOCATOR layer which has a block we use to align the various Xref's together. Main use is for forcing xref background layers to grey, but want to retain the locators in their original color...
First line of the filter: *|*
The problem is that Acad assumes that multiple lines containing the same attribute are OR statements, not AND. Is there any way to do what I want to do??
Have you tried *i*locator* and *locator*i*?
Those two filters (with or without the Excluding ~ symbol) will either give me ONLY the locators, or give me everything BUT the locators, including the non-xref layers (Layer 0, Defpoints, etc)
Not the result I'm looking for...
What I want is Only Xref, and/but Exclude their Locators.
Ok, helps when I read what you posted. DOH!
Unfortunately, I don't have a good answer for you... I suppose I would turn off the locator layers by...
and then set up a filter to find all the layers with | in them that were on. Not a very elegant solution. Hopefully someone else here will have a better answer.
Hear hear. I would like an anwser to this one as well.
As far as I can find the Layer Filter assumes all statements are OR statements and there is no option to choose whether it is AND or OR.
Any ideas or is this one for the wish list?
The following will exclude all XREF layers:
There's a switch you can flip to invert it to be nothing but XREF layers.
Unfortunately I am not sure how to include a non-XREF layer. If someone has an answer it would be interesting to see
