I've got an object where I had to delete a number of layers, leaving a giant hole where there are empty layers.

Is it possible to condense all the layers down so that they are numbered in sequence and there's no 'giant hole' in the layers window?

Thanks!

You can delete a single layer with the command DeleteLayer (sheach Key Config). You will have to do it 50 times. And if they are in Layout already, i don't know the implications.

Actually, I can select multiple layers in the Layers window, and ctrl-X will delete them.

I'm just trying to figure out how to plug the 'hole' in between where there are lots of empty layers just taking up space and pushing the other layers 'down' in the Layer window.

If you can find this script this might be what you want.

I found them:

Could try this one too. Not sure if the English translation is accurate though.

Maybe another one.

Try to use the "HOME" key is usually the default key to delete layers.

If these items are already in layout, prepare yourself for suffering. Hub does what it can.
