Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Using layer properties for layer management, part of AutoCAD: Tips & Tricks.
- [Instructor] So here we are again…with another AutoCAD Tip and Trick.…What we're going to be looking at…is working with layers in AutoCAD.…More importantly, the Layer Properties…and what benefits they give us when we're working…in one of our AutoCAD drawings.…Now we've got a new drawing open.…It's 07_UsingLAYERPROPERTIES.dwg.…As usual, if you want to download that, you can,…to follow along with the video.…Now, we're gonna look at the Layer Properties…within this particular 2D drawing…while we're working in the Model tab of the drawing.…
So, just jump into the Layers panel here.…Again, my panels are a little bit squished…based on the resolution I record the videos,…so I'm sure you can see all of that Layers panel…on your ribbon in your version of AutoCAD.…I'm gonna click on Layer Properties…and there's the Layer Properties Manager,…listing all of the layers in the AutoCAD drawing.…Now I'm just gonna click on the title bar there.…Just drag that up a little bit…so I can see more of the drawing.…I'm then gonna zoom in the drawing a little bit…
