Layer Isolate in AutoCAD?

By Hardi Lepiksaar on 13 Oct 11:45 2 answers 6403 views 0 comments

How do I isolate my layers in AutoCAD without screening all the others back?

Example... When I turn on layer isolate you can still layers in the background, and I was wondering how can I isolate layers and not see other layers screened in background.........

    You can use LASF.lsp from my website. That isolates layers by setting current to the first object picked and all other objects layers selected will also not be frozen, but all objects layers not selected will be frozen. LASF = LAYER SET - FREEZE THE REST. It also has an UNLASF function to return the layer settings to their previous setting. That, however, does not work for XREF layers.
    Look for Free AutoLISP/Visual Lisp routines.
