1. How it works

Run command LAYERPALETTE then you will have this palette showing:

The interface is quite straightforward. You can select multiple layers and then click to icons to change their properties all at once.

On top of the palette, to the left, there are 3 buttons of basic commands: Add Layer, Delete Selected Layers and Set Current Layer

To rename layer, just select its row then type new name. Using up and down key to navigate as if working in a spreadsheet.

Anytime, you can use native UNDO command to undo changes.

2. Filter view

On top of the palette, in the middle, there are list of built-in filters. You can choose showing All Layers, or layers in This Drawing only, or Xrefs layers only, or layers in a specific Xref.

To filter specific properties, click on the first row of the palette's table and a list of filter patterns will pop up.

  • + For layer name, you can choose showing only layers whose names start with "A", or "B", or "C" by selecting "A*, B*, C*"
  • + For color, you can choose showing only layers whose colors are in range of 1 to 5 by selecting "1-5"
  • + For lock, you can choose showing only locked layers, or unlocked layers.
  • + Filtering other properties in other columns are similar.

Name filter and color filter are more flexible. You can click to "Edit Filter" to add new filter pattern.

To delete a filter, move your mouse on it and click "Delete" key.
