Tip 2289: Layer Creator
Layer Creator from Timothy Spangler is a comprehensive application for managing a variable layer standards set. This utility lets you select from a library of predefined layer tables (maintained as ASCII text files) to quickly set up the layers, linetypes, and similar relationships in a drawing. Included is a TXT file that describes how to set up or edit any of the layer files. To use this utility, place the files in a path searched by AutoCAD and load the LISP code. Type LC at the AutoCAD Command prompt to launch the dialog box and select the layer setup you need. Nice programming!
