Layer control

Now that we have seen the full blown Layer Properties Manager, you may be wondering if there are any shortcuts for making changes to our layers. In fact, there are. In this session we are going to look how to use the Layer Control dropdown in the Layers toolbar. I'm going to open a drawing and I'm going to come up and click my Open icon and in the Select File dialog I'm going to look in Chapter 10 within our Exercise Files directory and I'm going to come down and we are going to open up the Stereo Viewer, drawing number 3. So I will highlight this guy and I'll click Open. Now on screen we have a mechanical example that's say 1970 stereo viewer.

Let's say I have to make some changes to this drawing and none of the changes that I will be making involve the dimensions. So I'm going to turn the Dimensions layer off. Now I could turn them off using the full blown Layer Properties Manager. I mean we could go right here and turn our dimensions off, nothing wrong with that....
