AutoLISP Layer Snippets

These are some of my frequently used AutoLISP snippets for layer management.  I’ve got a heap of these in a lisp file that I autoload into autocad at startup.  You can find the entire file here: layer-shortcuts.lsp.

If you look through that file, you’ll see that I have a common set of layers (for 2D and general work) that I include in every drawing file. The AutoLisp commands help to speed up my drafting with these common layers.

This is the syntax for each command:

Change to layer…

Move to layer…

Look like layer [transform]…

Reset object to default layer appearance…

copy to current layer…
