Subject: Working with layer states

Layer states are collections of individual layers and their properties. You can restore layer states at any time, which makes it easy to switch between layer configurations according to your tasks. Additionally, you can specify whether to restore a layer state to the current viewport, all viewports, all layouts and viewports, or the Model tab.

Layer states can also be imported and exported. For example, to quickly create all the layers you need in a new drawing, create and export a layer state from an existing drawing that has the layers you need, and then import the layer state to the new draw­ing.

Layer states are saved in the drawing, including drawing templates and exported or imported drawings.

For each layer included in a layer state, you can set the following properties:
