CMS IntelliCAD® 8 now provides advanced layer management commands and toolbars.
There are a variety of new layer management enhancements in IntelliCAD 8.x: Layer States, Layer Filters, Layer Search Control (Layer Explorer), New Layer Properties in Explorer (Transparency, New VP Freeze), New Layer Tools Toolbar and New Layer Tools Menu. Layers in CMS IntelliCAD are like the transparent overlays you use in manual drafting.
User can use layers to organize different types of drawing information. In IntelliCAD, each entity in a drawing exists on a layer. When users draw an entity, it is created on the current layer.
