Can part of line be switched to another layer?
samerickson89 posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceI'm trying to add doors where currently there are just lines for walls. Right now I'm doing that by drawing intersecting lines to use as reference points, using the trim feature to cut where I want the door, then draw the door and delete the reference lines. It's pretty time consuming, so I'm hoping there's a way I can just select two points on the line and switch the layer between those two points, leaving the rest of the wall in the original layer. Does anyone know of a way to do this, or have any other way to make this task go a little faster? Thanks in advance for any helpful replies.
Can't switch layer of objects
samerickson89 posted a topic in AutoCAD Drawing Management & OutputI'm using a drawing as a reference to make my own drawing, so I'm trying to switch all of the objects in the original drawing to the same layer to make it a little simpler to distinguish between the original and mine. A couple layers won't switch though. I select them all, choose the desired layer in the drop-down box, and nothing happens. If I select them again after that, they SAY they're in the new layer, but they still look/behave as if they're in the original layer (e.g. same color, only disappear when original layer turned on/off, etc). I've seen a couple other threads with a similar problem, but their solutions of setting "Pickfirst" to 1 or going through layer properties and switching "Color" and "Linetype" both to "ByLayer" didn't do anything. Any suggestions as to what else could be wrong?
Inputting point data, with layer switches, from excel
swmeche posted a topic in AutoLISP, Visual LISP & DCLHello, I have been trying to inport survey data that includes a descriptor into autocad from an excel file, with some prior forum posts on here I've been successful completing that. Now I am trying to change the layers as part of the data entry, the idea being that all my points are on the base layer "0" and that the text goes into either a "Good" or "Bad" layer with different colors. I thought I had this figured out but the "clayer" command doesn't close out when a space is given, does anyone have ideas on what might solve this? I have zero coding/lisp background so hopefully the answer isn't that, any help you could give would be appreciated though. Attached is a sample excel sheet with the two basic sets of info arrangements I have now for comment/review. point+text exemple.xls
change layer while editing (copy, move, rotate)
khoshravan posted a topic in AutoCAD GeneralWhat I want to do is to combine two commands, editing (copy, move, rotate) and change layer. I think I have seen this before somewhere but can't find now. Will be happy if you could guide me.
