Hi,

often I’m in the situation that I have to create an additional Layer mostly based on the settings from an already existing Layer. Just a question of organization. This new Layer has then everything identical except the name and one(?) Attribute. This could be that only the color or the Line weight deviates.

Example:

Existing Layer

Layer name: Lot 47 area existing

Attributes

Color: Red

Lineweight: 0.35

Linetype: Dashed


New Layer

Layer name: Lot 47 area proposal

Attributes

Color: Blue

Lineweight: 0.35

Linetype: Dashed

Unfortunately if done manually it happens in an blink of an eye that the human imperfection (me!) makes a mistake and (e.g.) a “Center (.5x)” finds it way into the Linetype Field instead of a “Center (.2x)” .... :-(

The workaround for a few User is to use in cases like this the Property Editor / General Property and customize single Attributes. In my opinion the first step to lose the control over your own drawing ...

A “Copy Layer” / Copy Layer Attributes” function would speed up this task and eliminate to a minimum the “human imperfection” factor.

I could imagine that a right click (like copy block) on the Layer triggers the “Add Layer” function and the dialog is already prefigured with the Settings of the Source Layer ...... ready for editing.
The new Layer itself is “empty” like any other new Layer.

FS#1622: X Scale Property lost for Simple Texts and Attributes 2017-08-08T11:03:47Z 2017-08-07T23:13:53Z

The X scale of block attributes, (and simple text) is not being saved with the drawing.
This problem was fixed for a while, but has re-appeared lately.

FS#1620: Layer Lineweight Default in Application Settings 2017-08-03T09:38:11Z 2017-08-03T09:18:18Z

Application Setting to set line weight setting on Layer 0 to a value (Default for example). Currently Layer 0 set to 0.25mm (ISO) New drawings will have Layer 0 set to this “default” line weight. Works for addition of new layers, but not initial Layer 0 on New drawing?
