Lee Mac's Layer Director tweak


Recommended Posts

I love this lisp of Lee's. Can't recommend it highly enough. :D

I have set it to create a new layer when using the INSERT

command, the name of which, I would like to be, the name of the XREF being inserted.

All layer properties to match layer 0, as shown in the image.

No problem getting it to create the new layer named Xref,

but how to extract the name from the object being inserted and add it to the layer name?

Is that possible? :?

The modification that you describe is certainly possible to implement, however, since the existing program creates and sets the current layer when a command is called by the user, the program could not access the XRef name until the command has completed; hence a separate condition would be required for the XATTACH command, instructing the program to create and assign the layer following completion of the command.


If you were prepared to cover my time on the modification, please contact me through my site and I would be happy to put together a custom version of the program for you.
