Renaming Layers in AutoCAD

You may want to rename a layer to better define how it’s used in your drawing. You can rename a layer at any time during a drawing session. You cannot rename layer 0 or an xref-dependent layer.

To rename a layer

  1. From the Format menu, choose Layer.
  2. In the Layer Properties Manager, select a layer to rename, select the layer name, and enter the new name.
  3. Choose OK.
