Creating a New Layer Frozen in All Viewports

Creating a New Layer Frozen in All Viewports
Learn how to create a new layer frozen in all viewports in AutoCAD 2018. Get quick and easy video tutorials on managing layers by AutoCAD experts.

You can use tools in the Layer Properties Manager palette to create new layers that are frozen in all viewports.

For example, suppose you wanted to create a new layer called “PLUMBING” and that you initially want that layer to be frozen in all of the existing viewports. You can easily do this by using tools in the Layer Properties Manager.

In the Layer Properties Manager, move the cursor over the R-CEILING layer and then right-click. The program displays a shortcut menu. In the menu, choose New Layer VP Frozen in All Viewports. The program immediately creates a new layer and is ready for you to enter the layer name. Type “PLUMBING” and press ENTER.

In the VP Freeze column in the palette, you can see that the new PLUMBING layer is frozen in the current viewport. The New VP Freeze value for the new layer is also set to frozen. When you make a different viewport the active viewport, you can see that the PLUMBING layer is frozen in that viewport as well.

Also notice that the new layer takes on all of the other properties-the color, linetype, lineweight, and so on-of whichever layer was highlighted when you right-clicked and selected the command.
