Postby Didier Bur » Thu Nov 29, 2007 9:52 pm

Hi all,
This is version 2 of my Layer Manager for SU6 (free and Pro).

What's new:

· Undo for all commands
· 2 new commands that deal with current layer
· 3 new commands to filter the layers visibility ;)
· 2 new commands to save/load states to/from external files
· Enhanced display of state dialog box
· Numerous bugs fixes :oops:
· New icons
· Active layer setting added
· "Delete all" layers states option added
· Overwrite existing states (while loading) option added
· Restore "Show only" and "Append" added

Enjoy, :!:

PATCHED on 12.06.07 6pm to fix a load bug.

Please get the latest version from the PluginStore

Architecte enseignant aussi, mon outil de predilection etant SU et Podium, j'ai laisse aux autres les divers autocad revit et archicad.
Un grand merci, je me demandais s'il n'etait pas possible de povoir gerer les layers a la facon de archicad. Tu l'as fais. Bravo :thumb: :ecstatic: :thumb: :ecstatic: :thumb: :ecstatic:

I know you want to protect your work, and I certainly agree with that position, but did you mean to make the PDF file unprintable? I have a note book filled with directions on using scripts, and this particular script will not print.

Thanks for the script and thanks in advance for your reply.

Hey didier, first of all great work! it really saves me alot of time.

I have many groups within groups within groups in a model I'm working on, is there a way to move a selection to current layer that digs into groups/subgroups and moves every line/face along with it?

this would save me a whole lot of tedious work.

thanks again for the freeware.

No... :oops: But you may take a look at TIG's defaults2layers.rb recently published. It can help you a bit.

Curious problem on my Macs (work and home): The Layer Manager toolbar does not appear automatically. Each time I open SU7 I have to go to View/Tool Palettes and click on Layer Manager. Sort of a nuisance, but Layer Manager is a major player for me in SU.

Is this normal or do I have a problem? :?:

Layer Manager is one of my top-usage plug-ins: especially the "all layers invisible except current" (the one with the red dot) and "all layers visible" (the one with the green dot).
Didier has just released a new version that "remembers" the state of the toolbar so you don't have to keep opening it.

Very useful (at least for me).

Workaround:
Open the main rb file with a texte editor,
go to line 160
type: layers_tb.show
save the rb file

the end of file must look like:
Code: Select all
layers_tb.add_item(cmd10)
layers_tb.show
# End of load
$layer_manager_menu_loaded = true
end
file_loaded("fr_layer_manager_extension_v6.rb")

restart SU, you're done.

Ok, workaround works fine on my Mac.! :D

Now is there also one for the Main toolbar on top? Icons do not stick there either. :P

merci beaucoup.

updt: I tried to find one plugin that would do it to see how it was done. But it seems like it's a real problem since not one of my plugins can keep its icons up there. Be it LightUP, Subd&Smooth, JPP, Tools-on-Surface or BezierSpline. :?: :?:

Hi,
Below is a preview of next release, still at beta:
lm_tb.jpg

I have split the script in 2 toolbars: 1 for the tools, 1 for the layers configs.

Features of toolbar 1:
Set layer of clicked object current
Set layer of clicked object current and isolated
Set layer of clicked object invisible
All layers visible
All layers invisible (except current)
Toggle visibility of all layers
Select/Deselect layer content
Move selection to current layer (digs in compos and groups)
Set layers of selection isolated (digs in compos and groups)
Set layers of selection invisible (digs in compos and groups)
Show layers by filter (add to visible layers)
Isolate layers by filter (digs in compos and groups)
Hide layers by filter (digs in compos and groups)
Toggle display color by layer
Match layer property of clicked object
Create layer and control behavior
Delete layer (digs in compos and groups)
Lock layer
Unlock layer

The other toolbar should have the same features than the previous release had, more or less.
Regards,

Hello Didier,

It would be great iff the new version of your tool also be able to pasword protect for instance a invisable/locked layer.
Will it be?
If not,do you think it is possible inside Sketchup?

Thanks for all your efforts.

Greetings,

This type of plugin is loaded as an 'extension', so it needs to be registered before it appears in the View>Toolbars list
To register it [once only needed] open Window>Preferences > Extensions tab, scroll to find 'Layer Manager' and tick its box: it should them be available on the View>Toolbars list :ugeek:
