Q - question

How to sort layers in the order of creation?

A - answer If you don't want to have layers sorted alphabetically and want to show them in the order you have created them, set temporarily the MAXSORT variable to 0 (warning: nothing will be sorted alphabetically).

For AutoCAD 2005 and higher use the commandline version of the Layer command: _-LAYER ? or the Layer Control dropdown.
