3 AutoCAD Tricks to Search Layers, Styles, Blocks & More in Drawings! | 2 Minute Tuesday

Hey Everybody,

Brandon here back with a new post for you all, this week we are taking a look at 3 easy ways to help speed up working with Layers in AutoCAD. Specifically, how to search for layers in AutoCAD, whether you need to find out which layer an object is on in an xref, searching for a specific layer in a busy/large drawing, and more!

In the video, I walk through how to use each method of finding layers, step by step. My favorite is probably using the wildcard trick to search for a specific layer in any drawing on your computer or server! The xlist command can also be a real life-saver, especially on a large drawing with many xrefs.

watch the video below to learn all about each method and see how to use them:
