Settings of Layers profiles

Layers profiles are used to organize different divisions of the design work within one drawing file. Every user works with their own group of layers.

note: When saving settings in a configuration file (not in a current document), all notes will be created on the Notes layer by default. It does not matter whether this layer is in the document. If a layer does not exist, it will be created with the parameters specified in the Table of layers dialog box.

To separate the work of the compliance supervisor and the technologist, create layers profiles.
