I would like to control the display of CAD line length and angle labels by layer in addition to via the dbx. Is there a way to do this? I know how to use the dbx below under display options, but I have a file with a bunch of different polylines and I would like to be able to turn on and off the labels without opening a dbx for each one. I would also like to display labels with some layer sets and not others for layout views. Thanks for any suggestions!
I am wondering if you can create a new material from polylines. I have made many new materials from images. But in this instance I would like to make a series of metal circles to use to "paint" a hemi-sphere. I could find an image to use to do this, but I want the circles to actually have real holes so light can shine through them. I have attached an example of this for a light. I am able to create a series of holes using a circle and the 3D molding polyline, multiple copy them and add to the library, but material is not an option. This may not be possible...
I am drawing a plot plan and the terrain perimeter is angled a few degrees. How can I show a dimension between the terrain perimeter and the setback line? The manual dimension tool doesn't work unless the terrain CAD lines are the set angles allowed by CA. I turn off the angle snaps and grid snaps, and it still won't draw a dimension.

Is there a way to move all of the CAD items on an existing layer to another layer for the entire plan? I am cleaning up some of my layers to simply the list. Over the years my layers have grown and I have some CAD blocks with lines on an old layer that I would like to move to a newer layer and then delete the old layer. For instance: I would like to move all of the CAD on an old layer named "CAD line size 25" over to a newer layer named "CAD 25." If it could be done then I could delete the old layers I no longer use. I have tried but have not been successful without exploding a block first; that would be a nightmare for all of the CAD blocks I have accumulated. But maybe I am missing something or it is so simple I am overthinking it. It would also be helpful if there was a way to determine which blocks use a certain layer. If so then only those blocks would have to be redone. Thanks in advance.
