Dumb Layer Set Question

Recommended Posts

I often temporarily turn items off in a layer set and then forget which ones are off. Is there a way to see or track recently hidden items? Or reset a layer set back to the way I had originally set it up?

I seem to mess up my neatly organized layer sets over time and/or redraw items that I had temporarily hidden.

Anyone?

There is no way to see when hidden or recently hidden.  But I have two solutions:

 

1 - What we do is keep a copy of our "real" layersets, the ones used in presentation drawings or construction drawings.  The copies have "working" added to the end of the layerset name.  When we're editing, that's the layerset we change to, so we don't muck up what shows on client drawings.

 

2 - When you have your layersets just right, export the layerset.  Then no matter how you fudge it up, you can always reimport that layerset and it will reset it back to right how you want it.

I use the sam method so I guess I should have the "real" layer sets saved there and then use that file to re-import those layer sets when I'm done fiddling around with the plan. Just before layouts.

Thanks for the tip.
