I have imported a DWG or DXF file with its own layers, and now want to delete them. How can I accomplish this task?


Layers can be deleted through the Layer Display Options dialog.

To delete unused layers from your plan

  1. Select Tools> Layer Settings> Display Options .

  2. If you want to make sure to delete the unused layers from all your layer sets, check the Modify All Layer Sets checkbox. To delete from the current layer set only, leave this box unchecked.

  3. Navigate to the layer from your imported file that you want to delete, select it to highlight it, and then click the Delete button to delete the selected layer.

    You cannot delete used layers or any of the system layers used by Chief Architect.
