AutoCAD® – Quick Layer Toggling With LAYWALK

by Will on June 29, 2011

Sometimes, using the standard layer managers for quickly looking at what’s on a layer can be a pain, especially when you want to just quickly flick through them to look at the content of many layers. Thankfully (and as usual), there’s a neat little command to do the job. The command is LAYWALK, which brings up a little dialog box with a list of layers, and you can simply select whichever layers you want to view, and it automatically toggles their visibility.

Have a play – it’s really handy for flicking through. When the command completes, the layer states are nealy restored to what it was before running the command.

Hope this helps, and if it did, subscribe below! (if you haven’t already)
