Q - question

Changed sorting of layers in AutoCAD 2014.

A - answer AutoCAD 2014 and LT 2014 changes the order in which numerical layer names are sorted (displayed). Unlike in version 2013 and older, layer names containing numbers are sorted (listed) in natural order, sequentially, not just alphabetically.

Compare the same layer list in AutoCAD LT 2013 (left) and in AutoCAD LT 2014 (right):

LT2013 LT2014

Please note that no other symbols are sorted in this way (e.g. dimension styles, font styles, linetypes).
