Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Layers in new drawings, part of Learning AutoCAD LT.
- So let's have a look now at how we add new layers…to a new AutoCAD LT drawing.…Now I've got a drawing here that does…already have some objects on it,…but they're there to clarify what I'm trying to get across…in this particular exercise.…So let's have a look at adding new layers…to our AutoCAD LT drawing.…Now what I've deliberately done here…is created three objects that relate…to the existing layers…that have come into this drawing…from the default template…that we created previously.…
So if I go to the Home tab on the ribbon now,…go to the Layers panel…and click on Layer Properties,…there's the Layer Properties Manager…and you can see that we've got the layers…Circle, Polygon, Rectangle.…So if I close the Layer Properties Manager now…and just hover over this one,…that's on the layer Polygon,…hover over this one,…that's on the layer Circle,…hover over this one,…that's on the layer Rectangle.…Now the reason that they're on their seperate layers…is so that you can distinguish one object from the other.…So we've got a polygon here,…
