Misha at Autodesk wants input on the LAYFRZ, LAYOFF and LAYISO tools

Let him know your thoughts. Your input needed Guys, I have a question for you. I am doing some research on the usage of certain tools/commands in AutoCAD and was wondering how many of you have ever used LAYVPMODE express tool to change default behavior of LAYFRZ, LAYOFF and LAYISO tools. I would like to hear from those of you who used these three express tools (no matter if you were aware of LAYVPMODE tool or not). Thanks, Misha Belilovskiy AutoCAD Test Development

    We love the LayFrz and LayOff tools! The most difficulty I have in supporting/training users is utilizing the Options for Entity Level or Block Level for both tools. It would be great if that were even more simple for users. I've found that users don't know the Options exist and that they don't understand the differences.

    I love the Layer Express Tools. Layer Walk is probably my favorite.

    I was not familiar with LAYVPMODE. I did attempt to read about it in the help menu, but I didn't find it listed.

    In general, I'd like to see the Express Tools updated.

    I use those tools a lot. But for ordinary users it's to difficult to understand that sometimes layers are frozen and sometimes they are turned off with the LAYISO command.
    I've modified the LAYISO command, so LAYVPMODE doesn't change it's behaviour anymore.
    Perhaps a solution would be to replace the command with a saved 'layerstate'.

    LAYFRZ is a great command, but is there also a shortcut to unfreeze the layers all at once? Similar to how the Layoff/Layon command works.

    It's pretty easy to create such a command.
    This will thaw all layers with the command ta.
    (defun c:ta ()
    (command "._layer" "_t" "*" "")
    (princ)
    )
    Put it in your acaddoc.lsp
