Not open at all? How about via the command line? Does that not work as well?

I'm experiencing the same problem as the OP.

 

Layer Properties Manager will not open. ACAD will sit there, seemingly loading the LPM, but nothing happens. I eventually have to 'Esc' to continue.

Get the same result from comand line "_layer" and clicking on the LPM button on the "Layers" toolbar.

 

Any help would be great!

 

Cheers.

Maybe it's off screen...

Start _layer, hit Alt+Spacebar, then M, then use your arrow keys to bring it back on screen (you may want to try it with a visible window to get the gist).

or...

Set a higher display resolution in Windows so you can see it.

Brilliant!

 

The LPM box was way off screen. Thanks lpseifert!

 

For anyone else that may have similar problem: I could not move the window into view using "Alt+Spacebar" then "m". However, "Alt+Spacebar" and then "s" will resize the window. just hold down a direction key (in my case I held the left arrow) and the window will appear.

 

Thanks again lpseifert.

 

Cheers!

I'll just add a note for the users here that use non-English versions of Windows programs - since this is a Windows fix and will work with any Windows application.

 

In the combo alt+spacebar+M, the M stands for MOVE - so if the combo doesn't work for you, try a combo where the M is replaced with your native word for MOVE. I (Swedish) use F :)
