LayerStates are a useful convenience feature for the CAD drafter. The ability to create and restore them quickly is important.
There are Lisp-based macros to create, retrieve or delete layer states, but here is one tip that will help you switch between layer states using the LayerStates combo control that is hidden by default in BricsCAD. Thanks to Hans de Backer for enlightening us with this tip on the Bricsys Forum.
Here is the procedure:
Key in CUI to open the customize dialog, and select the Toolbars tab.
In the left column, select the Entity Properties toolbar and click on the '+' sign next to it to see its content.
In the right column, scroll to the bottom and open the Controls section.
Drag the LayerState combo control into the Entity Properties toolbar.
Click the OK button to close the dialog.
You now can change to the desired layerstate by selecting it in your Entity Properties toolbar.
