Make an object’s layer the current layer

Let’s say you need to change the current layer, but aren’t sure which layer you want. But you know that you want the same layer as an existing object you’ve already drawn. That’s a pretty common scenario, right?

Enter Make Object’s Layer Current, also known as LAYMCUR.

This command has been around for a long time, but I think that people don’t use it as often as they could.

If you start the command first, it works like this:

  1. Choose Home tab> Layers panel> Make Object’s Layer Current (the LAYMCUR command).
  2. At the Select object whose layer will become current: prompt, select the object.

You’ll see a message something like this: ELECTRIC is now the current layer.

If you select the object first, it works like this:

  1. Select the object.
  2. Choose Home tab> Layers panel> Make Object’s Layer Current (the LAYMCUR command).

That’s easy, isn’t it?
