General Discussion / Re: Copy Layer / Rename Layer
« Last post by NeverStop on December 12, 2018, 05:27:27 AM »
Folks,

Further information is.

I created new layer using method Torfinn mentioned.

Content is not showing, no drawing is transferred.
So I did the original layer as layer in use and mark object and "COPY"
Changed to new layer and "paste"

The item is gone from Origial layer and now I have two in new layer.
One of the items is offset from other...

Just another day with TurboCad.

…. slabs do not stretch … etc.   - maybe.
But I do not think this is a big problem. You can select objects (multiple, slabs + wands, etc. together) - node edit - select nodes you want to change - and stretch it. Usually it works just like a command stretch. Usually, not always. Because some selections can not switch to node edit mode.

You can mark the layer you want to copy and then click on New layer and give it name, the property from the first will also be in the New one

I tried this. Only the name is same but layer content does not follow.

You can also open Format/ Layer, then you can change name directly instead of the long click if you are in a hurry :)

Haha... yes always in a hurry!  Well I tried this. This opens the layer pop up. And still need the long press.

General Discussion / Copy Layer / Rename Layer
« Last post by NeverStop on December 12, 2018, 04:30:14 AM »
Folks,

I wanted to just copy a layer - simply duplicate the layer.

But, I can't see how to do ?
Yes create new layer and copy item. But the simple way ?

Do I miss something ?

Also I wanted rename a layer. After a while I figured out the long mouse press.
But rename is missing in my right click  menu. ?? Any other missing this option ?

I wonder if it is the same reason that slabs don't stretch.
I use the Hatch tool (before adding doors and windows)  for rooms, I cant remember ,but I think it had something to do with the polylines not stretching when they were created by exploding a slab. It is almost as if there is some sort of invisible constraint applied

General Discussion / Re: Workplanes... In 2D? And Order of Process?

I think of layers as a way to organize items. Almost like chapters in a book.
I use layers to group items of the same type. Ie: Walls, text, dimensions.
I work with architectural drawings which have a lot of different types of components
So It makes sense to put components of the same type into one layer and different type of object into another layer.
Each items properties are set to "by layer" for example colour "By Layer"
When I want to change that property I change it in the layer palette and all items on that layer will change - even if they are in a block or group.
If I hide that layer all items on that layer will be hidden - even if they are in a block or group.
If the block  is on a layer that is hidden everything in the block will be hidden - regardless of the layer they are on.
This can become quite confusing so a lot of people recommend placing objects in a block on layer 0 and the block itself on the layer you want to control the object. Which works for simple objects but controlling different types of objects in one block with different colours and pen settings is more work because you have to open the block to edit properties and when you have a lot of blocks it can be time consuming.
For this reason , I use different layers in blocks. So I will have a sort of "Parent"  layer which is the general layer that the block will be on. Like a window will be on the window layer. The window sill will be on a sublayer "sills", trimmings on another layer and shutters on another layer. I usually have a 2d plan which I leave on layer 0 - this  will be controlled by the windows layer.

As well as being able to hide layers in viewports you can change the way objects appear in the viewport if you use "by layer" properties. Which is quite useful when you want a black and white drawing and your models uses every colour in the rainbow. 

  The position in space (co-ordinates) of the items in each layer is not related to the layer.
Unlike graphic design programs where display order is linked to layer position.
It is worth experimenting with layers as they can be quite powerful.
