AutoCAD Tips: Use LAYISO to Quickly Show Layers You Only Need

LAYISO command isolates the layer of selected objects so that all other layers are turned off. This is very useful to quickly reduce the visual complexity of a drawing without open the Layer Properties Manager.


Before isolating layer(s)


After isolating layer(s)

How To:

  1. Type layiso [enter].
  2. Choose object(s) you want to isolate [enter].
  3. If you want to hide the other layer, unsiolate first if you have isolate layer(s), after type layiso [enter], type s for settings.
  4. Type o for Off [enter], then choose the object(s)
  5. To unisolate, type layuniso [enter]
