AutoCAD LT - Multiple Layer Rename

Hi all,

 

Is it possible to batch rename layers in Autocad LT?

eg. when collating and overlaying files name existing layers as - Grd Floor -..., 1st Floor... etc.

Or is there an easier way of doing this?

 

Thanks.

FWIW - someone else was rooting around for this a few years ago, here.

@contactZCG8K Short answer: nothing easy/quick built-in does that but you can explore/ use wildcards in RENAME command like this if an option https://forums.autodesk.com/t5/autocad-forum/rename-multiple-layers/m-p/3772062#M187324

FWIW here is a list of Acceptable wildcards for Autocad
