I have been swamped with the Autodesk 2009 product line launches, the beta projects wrapping up on many of the products, took a week off and went hiking and shutterbugging in Southern Utah, and then I got sick. No time [Read More]

An awesome tip and a new CAD-related site I haven't seen before, .. thanks for sharing Shaan!

I also kicked this post over at:


Nifty feature, I never knew about it.

You should also mention that there is a further option pertaining specifically to paperspace viewports, whether you want to VPFreeze or turn off the layers. Before seeing this everytime I tried to LAYISO in a viewport I would get a useless viewport in return.

I guess it could be useful if you use LAYISO to set up the viewport, select the layers you want and freeze the rest. I never quite know what layers I want, and which I want to freeze. I guess its building up or cutting down. I also guess I'm rambling by now.

Is it possible to have the Layer Isolate command Freeze instead of turning OFF the other layers?

I would like the command line that will turn a layer off by clicking and object for a toolbar button. I spend a lotta time opening the layer dialogue window to switch layers visibility. AND how do I turn off the annoying windows that tell me what I just did like "the current Layer is turned off"
most annoying
I have a "Make object layer current ^C^C_ai_molc do you know of something similar???
thanks for any help.

this may be a stupid question, but how do you isolate a layer using command line text only? I type layiso, hit enter, and then it asks me to select obejects. how do I select the layer to isolate using only text commands? Thanks to anyone who can help me on this....
