Layer Window and Layer Color Attributes Display

Description

The method of displaying a Layer Color Attribute in the Layer Window has been changed.

Requirements

PowerCADD 8.0.0 or more recent



Previous versions of PowerCADD: When a Layer Color Attribute was assigned, the display of the Layer Name in the Layer Window was changed to display in the specified layer color. This made the names of layers difficult to read for some layer color settings.

The Change: When a Layer Color Attribute is assigned, the color of the Layer Status Bullet is changed to display in the specified layer color. The name of the layer is not change; it's still displayed as black, easy to read, text.

Notes:

  • There is no visible change in the color of the Layer Status Bullet when a Layer Color Attribute of black is specified.
  • There is a new Preferences setting (pictured below) that allows you to toggle the display so the Layer Name also changes color (i.e. so it works like PowerCADD 7). When Show Layer Color In Name is checked on, the Layers Window changes as pictured below and to the right. When it's unchecked the Layers Window appears as shown earlier in this article.

We hope that helps
