Turning Plotting On or Off for a Layer

You can turn plotting on or off for visible layers. If a layer contains reference information only, for example, you can specify that the layer is not plotted. If you turn off plotting for a layer, the layer is displayed but is not plotted. For example, you can create a layer for construction lines only and specify no plotting. At plot time, you do not have to turn off the layer before you plot the drawing.

To turn plotting on or off for a layer

  1. From the Format menu, choose Layer.
  2. In the Layer Properties Manager, select the layers you do or do not want to plot.
  3. Click the Plot icon on or off.
  4. Choose OK.
