Changing XREF layer colors in a tool

269 Views, 4 Replies

Does anyone in the group know how to edit the string below so that it will ignore all layer names starting with "E-". I want to change all XREFED layers in the current dwg. to 161 but ignore all XREFED layer names that start with E- such as E-lighting, E-power etc.

 

Thanks in advance

Henrique,

 

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!! this is perfect. Forgive me! I have very little knowledge of Lisp as you could imagine since I've posted these questions! in your opinion, what would be the best way to learn how to do this on my own??

 

Thanks again,

 

M.

Also consider looking up wcmatch function for wild-card pattern match. ..e.g. *|[~e-]*
