If you have groups of layers that you constantly perform the same set of state changes to why would you expect it to get easier each time? The only way to find out is to tune back into the post… As always leave us comments, we love to hear the good, the bad, and your questions and suggestions.
Using Layer States you can capture these frequently completed state changes into an easy to restore option.
For example, turning off Plumbing, Electrical, and HVAC layers when working on the Walls of a building, and then locking the walls, turning on the Electrical to make changes to the electrical related objects.
When you find yourself repeating this process of performing repetitive layer state changes to a group of layers you need to look at using Layer States.
Layer States can be exported so that they can be used in other drawings.
Select the Layer State in the Layer States Manager and click the Export button to export the file.
I now can quickly flip back-and-forth between the two states, quickly restoring the desired layer states. You’ve created a state but realize after that one of the layers is the wrong color and another is frozen and should be thawed.
