Thread: Layer manager always shows the current layer...

    Layer manager always shows the current layer...

    Whichever layer I set current stays current. This is all great, but the issue is when I pick something in my drawing that is on a different layer. I am accustomed to picking something and then the layer toolbar shows the layer that's picked. I am completely baffled as to how my AUTOCAD settings have changed this.

    Can anyone help out as to how to change AUTOCAD back so that the layer picked shows up on the layer toolbar?


    edit: The issue is: when a layer is current and I highlight a different layer, the current layer stays, and the highlighted layer does not show up.

    Type PICKFIRST at the command line and change the setting to 1.
