General Usage Instructions

Upon running the command, a model-less dialog box will be presented to the user. Work can continue at any point while the dialog box is open.

Select the options for layer names on the left side of the dialog box. The pre-loaded options will be NCS layer standards version 6.0. Version 5.0 is also available, and both settings files will be located in the Documents\AMR Consulting\Standardized Layer Creator\ folder.

The right side of the dialog box allows the selection of layer properties that will be assigned to the layer on creation. Plot styles (.stb files) are supported if used by the current drawing.

The Plot Styles option is only available to drawings that use the Named Plot Styles (.stb files) for plotting. Plot styles are read from the active plot style file, which can be changed by clicking the Load Plot Styles button.
