Subject: Creating layer states



Creating a layer state saves the current layer settings so you can restore them at a later time, modify them, and even import and export them for use in other drawings.

To create a layer state

   1   Create all of the layers that you want to be in the layer state.

Although you can modify the layer state later, first you should set up your drawing with its layers and properties so when you create the layer state, it captures all of the settings. If you don’t want to lose your current layer settings, simply save them as a layer state that you can restore later.

   2   Do one of the following to choose Save Layer State ():

   On the ribbon, choose Home > Save Layer State (in Layers).

   On the menu, choose Format > Layer Tools > Save Layer State.

   On the Layer Tools toolbar, click the Save Layer State tool.

   Type layerstatesave and then press Enter.

   3   Enter a name and description, then click OK.
