How to find the layer of an object located in a locked layer?

Recommended Posts

I have an object and I want to turn its layer off but it is locked or anything else which I can’t select the object and find its layer. Due to lots of layers I can’t try one-by-one. What is the best way to fnd its layer?

I'd use the LAYOFF command to just turn it directly off, you should have a similar command in Express Tools with that 13 year old version.


If you upgraded to a more current version it's easy as it displays the object as selected and allow you to modify it's object properties in the Properties Palette.

With the "Layer List Combo Box" in the "Quick Access Toolbar" it displays the object's layer when you select it.  With it you can turn it off, freeze, change the color, unlock, or freeze it in the current viewport.
