Hello,

is there a possibility in AutoCAD 2011 LT to duplicate layers with their contents?

I would like to map different scenarios in one file (four) and have to be able to take over the content from the previous layer.

Thanks in advance!
greetings

Hello,
Thanks for the quick help. Still had a lot to do and could only continue now.

Somehow that doesn't work for me with the layers.

My approach:
1) Copy all desired objects for the new layer
2) Create a new layer and set it to "Current"
3) Insert objects with original coordinates

But if I now hide the first layer, my drawing is empty. Nothing was inserted in the new layer ???

PS: Can't you delete a layer on which there are objects ???

I just read in the help that the function ORIGINSERT mentioned only works if you are copying data from another drawing.

But I want to copy data from the same drawing to a second layer.

Hello,

Do you have the command AUFLAYKOP (_copytolayer) in the LT2011?
It would do exactly what you just described with 1. 2. 3.. But it was once part of ExpressTool and LT couldn't ET. I don't know if you have the command in your LayerII toolbox, have a look.

>> Isn't it possible to delete a layer on which there are objects ???

No, at first ACAD prevents that. But there is the command LAYLĂ–SCH (_laydel) which mercilessly deletes. Mind you: what's gone is gone. Think carefully about whether you want to use it, you are currently not 100% fit in the ACAD

Hello homer,

regardless of the previous answers, here is also my possible version:
- All objects to be copied / duplicated on one layer (Layer1)
- copy with base point (0,0) -> the objects are now in the clipboard
- Layer1 rename in the layer manager to the desired new layer name (Layer2)
- insert (0,0) or insert with original coordinates -> it "arises" again Layer1 with your original objects
Now the identical objects are on Layer1 and Layer2.

No, that doesn't work normally.

Many greetings, Lutz

Good luck for!
