Switching to Layer Combination without my Say-So

Anonymous
Not applicable
If I for example edit the layer combinations and update a specific layer combination and hit ok, the 3d windows switches to that layer combination.

Why?

Is there any way to prevent this?

The only way to edit a Layer Combination is to make it active... so once you are done editing an alternative combination, you need to select your original again.

You can do these changes in the Attribute Manager - without affecting the current active Layer Combination. More so in AC22 (with new editing abilities to Layers and Layer Combinations).

That should have been really obvious... I have only ever thought of using it when I am needing to flick things between files or removing things...

Maybe I am missing something obvious, but in Attribute Manager (ArchiCAD21 and before) I can't do anything other than renaming layer combination, not actually set visibilty, lock/unlock, intersection group of layers in layer combination. Can change those in the Layers panel, but that won't change a layer combination.

It is great for importing layer combinations from other projects / attribute files though!

Just had a look around. In AC22, with the combined Layers / Layer Combination page, you can select a Layer Combination and the Layers change to match, which can then be modified. In AC21, between the two pages, I cannot find any way to select a Layer Combination to modify on the Layers page. The Layers page stays as which ever Layer Combination was active when the Attribute Manager was opened and the active Layer Combination becomes "Custom" when modifications are applied.
