My LT 2012 for Mac does not show a tool for "display all layers" in the layer pallet. I've fished around for some option to add this tool or expand the upper row of existing tools, but can't seem to find it. Does this feature exist in LT for Mac? If so, any guidance on how to make this tool active? Right now, I have to select all layers in the panel and then click the display button of one to change all selected, but I notice in tutorials for Windows based versions there is an icon for this function.
Attached is the pallet I see on my system...
Solved! Go to Solution.
Are you asking for a button to turn on or un freeze all layers? Without having to open a dialog box?
My windows version has this tool next to the freeze, turn off, lock etc. Not sure how to find it in mac version.
Sorry. Maxim will know,I think he misunderstood your question (but maybe I did! )
Yes, I mean a button that turns all on. It appears the Windows version has this and the Mac version doesn't. If it existed, you would expect it to be up where the Isolate, etc buttons are,
2012 version of AutoCAD for Mac (both full and LT) doesn't include LAYON (and LAYTHW) command, it is a feature of 2013 version.
But have to say, that in 2013 there is no such button on Layers palette too, you have to type commands at command prompt (or create button on Toolsets palette).
Thanks for sharing your knowledge on this. Even if it's not the answer we'd like to hear, it's incredibly helpful to get the facts. Grateful to have you as a resource!
I agree, thanks Maxim you are a great help.
But i just wonder about the ACAD for mac design engineers. It seems like the majority of acad-mac users have come from the PC side. It seems like these useful and familiar tools would be included in the mac version.
Also a topic for concern is the pdf printing ability, it is not so smooth in the mac version.
