We have a perpetual problem in our civil office. It is in inevitable that after all the last minute changes and 25 sets of 65 sheets have been plotted before a job goes out the door, somebody will see a sheet that either has a layer turned on (thawed) or off (frozen) that shouldn't be. Being the draftsman it is told that it is our job to monitor that. Visually doing it just doesn't cut the mustard, a drafter gets desensitized to the drawing after working on it for hours and days.
We are currently using the Layer Management Tools in Express Tools to set up layer states. But I was wondering what others are doing to prevent this problem. I was almost thinking (that's what I do best, almost think) that a lisp or VBA routine might work that would warn someone who is plotting that the current layer status does not match the Layer State for that drawing. Do you want to proceed or cancel? Anybody have anything like that?
Any comments or ideas?
