    Management of Layers with VG

    I am curious as to how others do it better (and yes I know without Autocad Layers all together is the best option)

    We import cad files from time to time and have to draw walls over them for visualization purposes. But managing multiple clients layers is problematic. Is their a trick someone has to be able to control a unique set of layers in one click as opposed to constantly having to click them all selectively?

    From v2017 you can shift select multiple rows for imports in OS and VV (good for deleting them too)

      if the client layers are standardized you could probably do something with Dynamo, basically creating a graph for each client setup.

        Thanks fellas, one wish/thought was the pick freeze options from Autocad. Being able to click a button, activate the button, click an object in the linked or imported cad file and it disappears....and perhaps the inverse. not sure if anyone else would see a use.

          That option exists, if you are in a view and select the CAD File. Its in the ribbon. Click Query, and select a layer, then hit Hide.

              Anytime! I wasnt sure if you knew about that one and were looking for something more graceful, like the actual Layer Tools in AutoCAD, but i find this works decently.

              1. Use the Query command to kill the layers i dont want in a view.
              2. Make VT from that View.
              3. Apply VT to other views.
