Civil 3D - LAYUNISO Command Issues
MillerMG posted a topic in Civil 3D & LDDHello All, Does anyone else have an issue with the command LAYUNISO? Every now and then when using this helpful command after using LAYISO it says that "Layers isolate by LAYISO command have been restored" but that is not always the case. Sometimes the layers are not restored and are left in a frozen state. To get the layers back on a LAYTHW or an UNDO is neccessary to get them back. This is counter productive because this adds extra work. Any layers previously frozen are turned back on or if you use the UNDO you have to redo the work. Any ideas? Thanks in advance. Miller
Split LayIso into 2 commands- OFF and VPfreeze
Sbeth85 posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceHi there, I want to take the Layer Isolate command and separate it out into 2 different commands and then make shortcuts for them. 1. LayIso --> layers turn OFF 2. LayIso --> Lock and Fade I tried going to the Manage tab and recording a Macro of me doing LayIso --> Settings --> Off, but when I tried to use the Macro it didn't work. I don't know, do I need an AutoLisp for this? (I don't know the difference between an AutoLisp and a Macro, in any case.) After that I need to figure out how to turn those series of commands into one command. From there I know how to create an Alias for it. Any help?
Is there any Command for isolating selected layers PERMANENTLY in VP ONLY?
DRAFTOLOGIST posted a topic in AutoCAD Drawing Management & OutputHi Guys I have a dwg. with lot of Layers. I want to view only a couple of layers in the viewport. The method I use is - LAYFRZ/VPLAYER all the OTHER layers. So just wondering if there is a command through which I select couple of required layers and freeze all other layers, except those selected layers, at one go in viewport. or - there is an quicker alternate method/ procedure for doing it. NOTE: I cant use LAYISO coz it freezes all the other layers in MODEL space as well. Thanks
Layiso settings option doesn't show on command line
walterplinge posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceWhen I run LAYISO on the command line, It returns 'Select Objects on the layer to be isolated' It doesn't give an option of 'or [settings]. On my colleague's machine it does give the 'or [settings] option. Both machines plain ACAD 2009. What is the system variable that controls this behaviour? (I want to select Vpfreeze in paperspace viewport use.)
Restore layers Visibility after layiso command - LayerState??
andre81 posted a topic in AutoLISP, Visual LISP & DCLHi All, I'm Autolisp beginer and first problem which I would like to solve with it is how to restore layers Visibility after Layiso command. In few steps it's looks like: 1. Before use Layiso command I'have some layers that are on others are off. 2. I'm using Layiso and makes some changes on drawning. 3. After changing I want to restor layers visibility from point 1 (before Laiso command). My idea is to use LayerState functions: layerstate-save, layerstate-delete and layerstate-restore. I have problem with using LayerState functions. I could name functions for example "Iso" and "RestoreState". LayerState name could be "XX" Program structure: Step 1 - c:Iso I'm checking if "XX" exist. If "XX" exist then using layerstate-delete I'm deleting "XX". I'm creating LayerState "XX" using layerstate-save. Step 2 (command "Layiso") Step 3 I'm doing some changes in drawing. Step 4 - c:RestoreState I'm restoring "XX" using layerstate-restore. My problem is that I don't know how to use LayerState functions. Many info I've found here: http://www.cadtutor.net/forum/showthread.php?39986-LayerState-Manipulation-Info.-Coding but still don't know how to for example make Layerstate "XX" using it. or don't work. How it should look like? Also I've tried to use only commands: This code don't has checking if "XX" exist but works. How to write code using LayerState functions?? Anyone can help?
