List of Option

The following option is available in this dialog box.

Check Layer States to Import

Displays a list of layer states, the space (model tab or layout tab) in which the layer state was saved, and a description.

The layer state names in the selected file (DWG, DWS, DWT) are compared to the layer state names in the current drawing. Duplicate layer state names are not checked by default. When a duplicate layer state name is checked, a prompt displays if you want to overwrite the existing layer state.

NoteIf the layer state to be imported contains linetypes or plot styles that do not exist in the current drawing, they are imported from the DWG, DWS or DWT file.
