AutoCAD Tutorial: Search & Group Layers – How to Find and Organize Your Layers Quickly – 2 Minute Tuesday

Hey Everybody,

Brandon here with a really helpful new video and accompanying tutorial post that I wanted to share with you all.

As you probably know already, I’ve recently partnered with the AutoCAD Blog to produce some of my favourite CAD Tips as Tuesday Tip articles along with an accompanying Two Minute Tuesday Video.  In the last post, I mentioned the first two of my articles (Tips) which you can check out here.

Today I wanted to share the third instalment in the series and I’m really excited about this one, in the Article I explain and walk through how to quickly find any specific layer you might be looking for in your drawing using the Layer search option along with a few tricks to help make it easier for you.  This trick can save you a ton of time, especially if you’re someone who has a tendency to have large drawings with a lot of layers, or you frequently get drawings from clients and are not familiar with their layer naming conventions.

Check out the full Article on the AutoCAD Blog for my Tips on Layer Searching and Better Layer Organization:
