Have You Tried: AutoCAD Layer States

Lee Ambrosius

For this installment of our Have You Tried series, let’s take a look at AutoCAD layer states.

A layer state is like a snapshot of the existing layers and layer settings at the time the layer state is created.  You can turn layers off, freeze layers, and change the properties of other layers. When you’re done making the layer changes, save the layer state making it easy to return to the layer settings. You can also export the layer state and import it to another drawing.

In this Have You Tried, we’ll go over:

  • Saving layer states
  • Restoring a layer state
  • Exporting and importing a layer state
  • Editing a layer state
