I have been unable to draw on other layers. (I'm just beginning with CAD.)
On layer 0, I drew two tables (plan view, so they are just a rectangles, 2.5'x8'). Then I set brush properties so that one had cross hatching and the other had dots. I also added a text box to the center of each table. One says "Club", the other "Rental." Question 1:
the tables look fine. However, I would like to have the table rectangle on layer 'a' and the shading and text on layer 'b'. I can not figure out how to draw on another layer. My first attempt had me drawing on 'invisible' layer 1. Can you tell me how to access the separate layers.Question 2:
Eventually, I would like to make a floor plan of a banquet room (lets say, another rectangle) on a separate layer, eg layer 'c'. Then I would cut and paste several multi-layered tables into the banquet room. Thus I would have:
- Layer a: Table rectangles
- Layer b: Table shading and text
- Layer c: Room floor plan
My goal is to print a floor plan with the table locations (layers a & c), and another floor plan showing the locations of the table types (layers a, b, &c).
Is this possible? Can I cut and paste the tables and table text when they are on multiple layers?
Thank you for your help,
