[Plugin] Modification to PutOnLayer

[Plugin] Modification to PutOnLayer

Postby Dik Harrison » Sun Sep 07, 2008 3:17 pm

I tend to have way too many layers in my more complex models, and I really like Chris Grant's PutOnLayer as modified by Brian Wirth to put the geometry in Layer 0, but with so many layers, it is often difficult to locate the layer I'm looking for since the plugin lists them in ID order. I did a little tweak to the plugin to sort the layer list by name alphabetically. I hope someone else out there can make use of it.

PutOnLayer_bmw_wrh.rb


P.S.
I forgot to mention that you need to rename the file to PutOnLayer.rb when you put it into your plugins folder.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. :berserk:

Would you believe that I was in the Ruby Forum about to ask if someone could do this very thing!!
Many of my models are very large and have up to 50 layers or more. It was really a chore to first make the layer current and then click on an object and then use Put on Layer. This makes it so much easier.

Really a good improvement. Mainly when using a lot of layers ( for teaching purpose )on drawings about sophisticated devices ( X ray Fluorescence spectrometers)

Thanks a lot :thumb: :thumb:

Dick,

I tried your version. It does a nice job of listing the layers in alphabetical order, BUT it seems to have broken the function of the original script which is to move ALL NESTED geometry to a target layer.

Do you have a way to fix this?

Putting things on Layer(0) is nice, but how about putting things on a layer of choice rather than just Layer(0).

As I said in my Dec 2008 post, I thought this plugin used to do that: am I wrong? [Windows 7]

i just added working layer list sorted by name.
try it, now it should work.
maybe someone could try to update layers list to display in coulumns?
without having to scroll up and down.

Old post, but here is an update for those having difficulty. Use this script in conjunction with:

viewtopic.php?t=7638

The two combined are brilliant! This is especially true for those that use proper layering techniques, but receive models from Revit Exports.

Hi there! This is a great plugin, but could there be an option to create a new layer, after I have selected a group, and right clicked on it?

It could be useful to right click > Put on Layer > New..

Is it possible?

I have used this plugin in the past, but now in v2015 it is waaay too slow. Changing layers by the entity window is instantaneous. However I find the entity window tiny pulldown menu to be a pain to use. Any options? Why can't a plugin move things onto layers as fast as the entity window?
I guess I should ask why is the entity window pull-down so miserly and 20th century. But I guess we know the answer.
