Q - question

Layer Manager is faster again in AutoCAD 2006.

A - answer Many users had performance problems in the AutoCAD 2005 Layer Manager. This dialog loaded slowly when the drawing contained many layers and many layer filters (from older versions). AutoCAD explored every layer to find if it is currently in use (contains objects).

AutoCAD 2006 has a new option in the Layer Manager dialog - "Indicate layers in use" (off by default). Keep this option disabled unless you really need the 'in use' information.

The new LAYERFILTERALERT variable can now protect against multitudes of layer filters slowing down layer operations - keep it set to 2 (default) or 3.
