    Default layer just wont delete

    When in the layer properties mgr I attempt to delete an empty layer but I keep getting a the message.... "the following layers cannot be deleted....."


    There has got to be a simple answer to this. There are no objects associated with the layer...

    use the PURGE command, purge all layers...usually this works.

    Check out this thread....

    check your blocks & xrefs, referenced layers can not be deleted. Try also express tools>>layers>>delete layers.
