LayIso command has another implementation. In case you need to change the properties of specific layer, you open Layer manager, find layer and change its color, linetype etc. Easy task, if you know the name of layer and have just a few layers in current drawing. But if the drawing has dozens of layers, Blocks and Xreferences, it takes time to find Layer name and then browse to find Layer in Layer Manager.

Let's use Layiso. Perform Layiso command, then open Layer Manager displaying isolated layer highlighted. Now you can quickly change the properties of layer (watch video on this page).


You also can change the properties of several layers, because LayIso can be applied to layers of all selected objects. You may need to use sorting of On/Off column to display isolated layers together in the beginning or end of the list.
