View Full Version : Layers defaulting to HIDDEN/Inactive? -and/or- "Hide All But Current Layer" script

I use a lot of 'work layers' or 'temp layers' in my modeling-- in general, the number of hidden layers in any given object exceeds the actual geometry layers I want to show in Layout.

1) I'd like a user option/Preference for "Layers Default to Inactive" in Modeler. This would save me a ton of clicking in the still-not-as-good-as-it-could-be LWM Layers Panel.

2) It might already exist (I'll go hunting right after this), but meanwhile a "Hide All But Current Layer" utility would be swell.

EDIT: after a trip to LWPLUGINDB.COM, I came up empty handed for "Hide All But Current Layer". --And now that I think about it, "Hide All But SELECTED Layers" would be better anyhow.

If setting a layer to active or not is accessible to lscript you could probably script that.
