Automatically assign new entities to specific layers based on their type. Analog to AutoCAD Mechanical functionality, but works with every AutoCAD flavor and with six different entity categories.

General Usage Instructions

Through the command COMSLAYERIT you'll access the settings form.

The form will allow you to quickly enable or disable the plug-in functionality, and to define which entities you want to monitor and which layer will be assigned to them.
By default, the plugin is enabled soon after the installation, but no entity categories are activated.
You must enter this form at least once and activate the entity categories you want to monitor.

The form is quite simple and almost self-explanatory.



Ribbon/Toolbar Icon Command Command Description
