Showing Layer of an object when selected

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to show the layer an object is on without opening the object specifications? Maybe down on the bottom bar (not sure what it's called)

yes, Chief already does that

 

if the layer is not showing in the lower right then check your preferences and defaults

Yes the status bar displays the layer but much more useful is the Active Layer Display Options panel  ( ALDO ).

Thanks to both, the status bar is the quick reference I was looking for. Does the ALDO change automatically when you select a different object? Right now, mine does not.

Yes it should highlight the layer of the selected item and show associated layers.   Not sure there is a setting to turn that functionality off ?

Sorry, yes it is a backwards setting.  Deselect "Show all Layers" in ALDO options.
