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.

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 :: (Toggle Mask Visibility) Shortcut?

Jul 4, 2013

Is there a keyboard shortcut for "Toggle mask visibility"? I can do this by ALT-clicking on the layer's mask, but I would like to assign a shortcut for this on a button on my Wacom Intuos 4 drawing tablet. So far I haven't found a menu shortcut for it, nor have I found a way to add my own (Edit-Keyboard shortcuts) as the function isn't listed there.

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.

AutoCAD Inventor :: 2 Step Visibility Toggle While Drafting

Sep 2, 2013

I am trying to draft an assembly - when i want to hide some components I go to the tree and right click on the part/assembly and select Visibility.

There is a square next to visibility on the right click menu (like a 'stop' button) and nothing changes when i select it.

When I right click on the tree a second time, a tick appears (like in modelling/assembly view) and when selected it disappears. 

I want to turn items off in one click -

AutoCad :: How Multiple Lookup Toggle Created Without Any Visibility State

May 7, 2013


Since weld symbols are regularly used in my day to day work, i thought of making a dynamic block. I had zero knowledge of dynamic blocks at that time. I realized that its actually very difficult to make a type of dynamic block i wanted. So instead of breaking my head to create it, its better to downloaded it.

Attached is the drawing i found on a forum. Its extremely cool, that's exactly what i wanted. The multiple toggle is extremely useful. That's what i wanted but was unable to create.

How this multiple lookup toggle were created without any visibility state?

AutoCAD Inventor :: ILogic - Toggle Visibility For Item In Assembly Pattern

Jan 30, 2013

I have a subassembly that has been patterned.

I need to toggle the visibility of a part in that subassembly in each pattern element.

How do I refer to the part?

I have declared an object for my pattern, and can toggle the suppression on any element.

But I need to get at an individual component inside the element. 

I've been trying something like this:

oPattern.OccurrencePatternElements.Item(X).Component.Visible("Valance Jig Frame - 1in:1") = False

Illustrator Scripting :: Turn On Layer Visibility Without Exact Name?

Jan 4, 2013

I am realtively good with actionscript, so I am trying my hand at this to streamline our image exporting process. I am using CS5 on a PC.
We build our illustrator files to be a combination of different layers. Sometimes just one layer is exported at a time, and sometimes layers are combined to form a more complex image. We use layer names with instructions of what layers should be on and off.
An example of the layer naming might look like this:
03 (01-ON, 02-OFF)
02 (01-OFF)
I have been able to figure out how to check if there is a note to turn a layer on, my question is how do I select the layer to turn on the visibility without using the exact name of the layer?
In my example, when layer 3 gets exported, it should have layer "01" visible and layer "02 (01-OFF)" not visible. Since our files are always constructed differently (meaning 02 might not always have a note about 01 being off), I can't use the getByName option because I don't have an exact name to call the layer and turn the visibility on. The layers always start with 01, 02, 03, etc. Is there a way to use getByName and only have it look at the first 2 characters of the layer name?

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 :: How To Lock The Layer

Jun 10, 2012

I am in 2D mode in autocad, drawing a plan. I have locked one layer and also increased the translucency, jet my snaps still respond to the objects in this layer, where all I want to do is keep it as an underlay while I draw the rest of the things. The objects within this locked layer are also selectable, they come up with doted lines once selected, but I can't edit or move them, because the layer is is locked.

Is there a way to lock the layer, so that it is completely ignored by snaps and selection, jet kept visible with little transparency?

I am using AutoCad 2013, and there are only blocks within this layer.

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Lock Current Layer - Turning On / Off

Apr 9, 2012

Is there a way to lock the current layer (to say layer 0) so that is STAYS the current layer regardless of my isolating, turning layers on and off etc?

Really annoying to keep getting those "Are you sure you want to turn off the current layer" messages and it would prevent me from either drawing thing on a layer I don't intend to, or drawing on a layer which is off (which confuses me every time).

AutoCAD 2010 :: Conditional Layer Lock And Readonly?

Apr 8, 2012

We are using AutoCad 2012. Our company have more than 32 disciplines. For any projects the drawings are prepared with many disciplines. Civil does the civil drawing portions, water does the water pipeline portion, electrical does the electrical cable layout portions etc. etc. Each departments have their own set of layers in the drawing.

Now the problem is civil can accidentally modify the entities of electrical departments / utility departments. Though we lock the other disciplines layers programmetrically, but user can unlock the other disciplines layers easily if he wish to. Can we make those other disciplines layers read only? So that users can draw / modify in his own discipline layers but can not do that in other disciplines layer. But he can refer those layers / copy entities from those layers if he wish to? Some sort of xref type of thing is required, but we can not use xrefs as we work in a single drawing and our custom drawing management system is integrated with this type of file system accross the offices.

Photoshop :: Partially Locked Layer But No Icon Highlighted Under Lock

Jul 7, 2013

1. I try to use any auto correction such as tone, and nothing appears to change

2. I see the small layers 'background' icon flashing as I do this into the black and white check pattern

3. It seems that the layer background is partially locked- (when I scroll my mouse over the 'lock' icon this is written)

Yet there is no icon above in 'lock' that is highlighted. So I cannot unlock it.I am able to adjust in all other methods which are not auto corrections. Perhaps I changed some settings accidentally?

Illustrator :: Toggle Between Line Weights?

Feb 1, 2013

I'm primarily an illustrator user, but my office has several people with ISOdraw backgrounds. Part of our job is making line drawings with just a couple of different line weights, and apparently in ISOdraw you can set two line weights and quickly toggle between them while you're working somehow, and the lack of something similar in illustrator frustrates them. To make things easier for me i made a little graphic style library with the relevant line weights in it so i can click between them, which works fine for me, but in ISOdraw it's supposedly more intuitive somehow and they want to know if there is any way of doing something comparable, but I'm at a loss as to what else we could do. Maybe there's a keyboard shortcut for switching graphic styles, or some other shortcut i never noticed?

Photoshop :: Selecting Layer Visibility

Sep 11, 2013

In <CS6, you could click down on the eye-icon in front of a layer, move out of the layer tab group, move up a couple of layers, and then go back in, to deselect that layer too.
In CC, when you do this, it'll deselect all the layers in between as well. I'm sure this is working as intended, but it was a ridiculously useful "bug" (feature!) when it wasn't working this way.
Use-case: to instantly switch between one set of layers and the other. I know there are other options to do this with, but there's just no real reason to "remove this feature" (correct this bug?) because you already *had* the option of deselecting everything you move over in the first place.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Layer Visibility On Different Sheets?

Jun 12, 2013

I am trying to control the layer visibility on different sheets of the same drawing but have not quite figured it out yet.

We add a DXF sheet to drawings with flat pattern views to export to DXF for our laser.  I wrote a VBA macro that adds the sheet, copies the flat pattern view and removes the dimensions to clean it up before creating the DXF.  I am having a problem turning off the visibility of the bend lines on JUST the DXF sheet.  I can turn bend lines and hidden lines off with this:

 'Turn off bend lines and hidden linesFor Each oView In oSheet.DrawingViews 'Set the layers collection Set oLayers = oDrawingDoc.StylesManager.Layers 'Turn off all bend lines and hidden lines For Each oLayer In oLayers If Not InStr(oLayer.Name, "Bend Centerline") = 0 Or Not InStr(oLayer.Name, "Hidden") = 0 Then oLayer.Visible = False Else End If Next Next

 but it turns them off on all sheets.  I want to only turn them off on the DXF sheet.  How would this be done?
