AutoCad :: Selection And Layer Toolbar

Nov 6, 2011

The ability to have the layer toolbar show what layer an object is by selecting the object in model space has ceased to function. Not sure what I did. It's not specific to the drawing either as I've tested it in other drawings as well. It's a toggle somewhere in autocad. BTW Its on my 2006 version. I own 2012 but i'm an old dog that doesn't like to learn new tricks.I just noticed that the prelection ability within autocad is shut-off. For example you select a few object and then use the copy command. The copy command does not recognize the pre-selected objects anymore. Autocad now requires me to select the object from within the command itself.

Illustrator :: How To Toggle Layer Lock / Visibility In CS6

Jun 16, 2012

How to toggle the layer lock/visibility in CS6 than in the earlier versions.

It seems that there's more padding around the lock/visibility icon, and you have to be really precise to click it... increasing the row size doesn't really make any difference, as the "padding" is still there. Wheres in the earlier versions clicking anywhere within the toggle box would enable/disable it.

AutoCAD LT :: Using Layer Toolbar Dropdown Menu

Oct 20, 2012

I have been having problems using my layer toolbar dropdown menu.  My drop down bar will show the current layer or the current layer and the layer of a selected object.  I need to open the Layer Properties Manager in order to turn on/off or freeze/thaw other layers.  It seems to happen the most when I have external references loaded into the drawing.

Also, the Layer Properties Manager has a few quirks.  If I create a new layer, it will not record changes to the layer color, linetype, etc on the first try.  I can make these changes, but when I close the Layer Properties box, all of the changes are lost.  I need to reopen the Layer Properties Manager and make the changes again.

The Layer Properties Manager also seems to have a glitch where it will deselect from the manager back to the drawing without a mouse click.  Also, when I click once on an external reference layer to select, it tells me I cannot modify this layer.  I would assume this would pop up if it were a double click action for modification, but it does this after a single click. 

It seems that there are some major glitches with the Layer Properties Manager.

Photoshop :: How To Toggle Visibility For A Layer Group And All Its Sub-groups

Sep 1, 2012

As I am using Layer Comps more frequently, i find myself frequently needing to toggle the visibility of layer groups, which contain several sub-groups. I tried all the shift + cmd + option - click variations, but none seems to do the trick.
here an example:
Visibility           Type           Name
OFF                Group         Row
ON                  Group         Button 1
OFF                Text            Help!
OFF                Shape         Bg
ON                  Group         Button 2
OFF                Text            Help Please!
OFF                Shape         Bg
so what i am looking for is a short-cut so that when i click on the visibility of the Group Row, it will turn on the visibility of all the layers contained.

Photoshop :: Keyboard Shortcut To Toggle Specific Layer On / Off

Jul 17, 2013

I just recently discovered the keyboard shortcut for toggling the current layer on and off and it is an incredible time saver.  Is it possible to create a keyboard shortcut dedicated to toggle a specific layer on and off regardless of what layer I am working on?  I use Photoshop for painting and I'll have a layer set up like an overlay, with my line drawing set to Multiply blending mode at about 25% opacity. 

However, as the painting progresses, I need to turn that layer on and off continuously to be able to see my painting without the lines overlayed.  I know I lose a lot of time having to go over and turn the eye off and then back on over on the layers pallete.  I've tried setting something up as an Action, and had a shortlived success, but when I added new layers or moved them around after setting it up, it stops working.  I have to say, it was my first attempt at creating an Action of any kind, so there may be a way to keep it working regardless of what I do to the other layers, Having the ability to somehow dedicate a key for quick toggling of my drawing layer would be another tremendous time saver.

AutoCAD 2013 :: How To Use Toolbar To Load Toolbar From Partial Customization Menu

Dec 19, 2013

I've tried to figure out the pattern of how the command works for inputting partial customization menu toolbar names but I'm unsuccessful.

You should be able to show and hide partial customization menu toolbars with the -toolbar command because it can hide all toolbars including my partial customization menu toolbars currently shown. I've tried the toolbar menu alias (defined in the CUI command) and the name (refer to this link to the same image embedded below) and none work.

AutoCAD LT :: Toggle Snap To Xref

Jan 26, 2013

Is there a way to toggle snapping to a layer or xref?

When using object snap and you are drawing with a busy survey xref in the background, the mouse cursor really hunts around a lot on the contour lines and stuff instead of on what I am drawing. But, I would like to see the contour lines as I go, rather than hide the layer.

AutoCad :: Reassigning A Key To Toggle Ortho

Mar 30, 2013

My new HP laptop has functions assigned to the F function keys, and this disables the autocad functions for these keys. I am told by HP that it is not possible to turn off these functions to allow cad to use them. I just tried working without using the F3 and F8 keys, and I am crippled. How can I assign another key - say Q - to toggle ortho?

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Toggle Between PS And MS

I upgraded from Autocad 2004 to 2012 recently and my lisp file doesnt work anymore.

what it's supposed to do is when looking at the layout tab that you want you can switch to the model space location of the same zoom as the layout tab without messing with the layout zoom.

(defun c:msp ()
(setq cm (getvar "cmdecho"))
(setvar "cmdecho" 0)

(setvar "tilemode" 0)
(princ "Click TWICE on desired VPORT: ")
(command "mspace" pause "view" "s" "tmp")(princ)
(setvar "tilemode" 1)
(command "view" "r" "tmp")

AutoCAD 2010 :: Toggle Text Window?

Sep 18, 2012

I can press F2 to open the AutoCAD Text Window, but I'm looking for a reliable way to close it once it's open.  If it's not overlapping with AutoCAD, F2 doesn't close it.  I currently have it on a monitor other than the monitor AutoCAD is on.

Is there a system variable I can use to setup a LISP to toggle (or at least close) the Text Window using a keyboard shortcut?

AutoCad 2D :: Toggle Between Ortho On / Off - Measure Command

Jan 28, 2013

I have moved onto a new machine and there are 2 AC functions I need to change.

1. I used to be able to toggle between Ortho on/off by holding the SHIFT key, on this machine it doesn't activate. Is there a command for this? I know I could use F8 but my hand is over the SHIFT key when I draw so its easier to do it this way.

2. When I activate the MEASURE command AC automatically activates Dynamic Input which makes my cursor jumpy when I move it. How can I stop this from happening? To clarify, I don't want Dynamic Input on when I am in the measure command.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Using A Rule To Toggle Part Visibility

Jun 12, 2012

I have a simple Assembly for a Frame that I made with Frame Generator. I'd like to use a rule to toggle the visible of some of the framing members.

In the sub assembly (called Frame0001:1) I created a rule:

(I have a variable called LeftAngle, and the bar I want to toggle is called Bar1.)

If LeftAngle = 90 then
Component.Visible("Bar1") = False
Component.Visible("Bar1") = True
End If

I am sure this is VERY basic, but I can't get it to do anything. There is no error message - just nothing happens.

I know the rule is running though - it will change other parameters in response to the If Then statement.
