    Unhappy Layers - Snap Shots vs. Saved States

    Can someone explain the difference between Layer Snap Shots and the Layer States Manager? With a few minor exceptions, they look like they do the same thing. But knowing Autodesk, there something hidden in there that is not real obvious.

    Question Re: Layers - Snap Shots vs. Saved States

    Hi

    What are "Layer Snap Shots", can you please explain to me what they are (or what you mean by that term)?

    Have a good one, Mike

    Default Re: Layers - Snap Shots vs. Saved States

    In the Layer Manager, there is a little camera icon about 6th from the left. When you mouse-over, it says "Snapshots". From what I've read and from messing around, it just saves the layers On/Off, Frozen/Thawed, etc.

    I honestly don't think vanilla AutoCAD has such a tool, therefore I would like to move this thread to the ADT 2005 Forum, is that ok?

    Thanks, Mike
