Q - question

Choosing between the new and old Layer Manager dialog.

A - answer AutoCAD 2009 introduced a new modeless (always active, floating) dialog of the Layer Manager. If you want to use rather the old, classic modal version of the Layer dialog for the LAYER command, use the following methods.

  • To switch between the old/new layer dialog, use the LAYERDLGMODE variable (1=new)
  • To run the old dialog version (regardless of the variable setting), use the CLASSICLAYER command (you can even display both dialogs at the same time)
  • To run the new dialog version (even when the variable is off), use the command LAYERPALETTE
