LayerWalk Dialog Box

LayerWalk Dialog Box

Dynamically displays objects on layers that you select in the Layer list.

The number of layers in the drawing are displayed in the dialog box title. You can
change the current layer state when you exit, save layer states, and purge layers
that are not referenced.

You can use the Layer Walk dialog box in a paper space viewport to select layers to
turn on and thaw in the layer table and the current viewport. Any layer that is not
selected in the Layer list is frozen in the current viewport. You can change the display
of one viewport without altering the display of another viewport.

List of Options

The following options are displayed.

Filter

Turns an active filter on and off. When this check box is selected, the list displays
only those layers that match the active filter. When this check box is cleared, the
full list of layers is displayed. (This option is available only when there is an
active filter.) To turn on an active filter, in the filter list, either enter a wildcard
and press Enter, or select a saved filter.

the layer list to display more options.
