When I place an object in a plan, a Question message will sometimes ask if I "want to display the layer?" Why does this happen?
This Question message will display if you try to draw, place, or have the program generate an object that will be placed on a layer that is not turned on in the current view.
For example, if you are in floor plan view and the "Windows" layer has been turned off in the Layer Display Options dialog, and you try to place a window in a wall, the message will display.
