Dynamic Layer Settings

Here's one I've wanted for quite some time, always hoping would somehow magically happen in a release...

When you Show or Hide a Layer in the Layer Setting dialog box, I'd LOVE to see those layers appear and disappear (toggle on/off) the instant you click on the "eye". That way you could create Layer Combinations much faster, or simply have a "look-see" at some layers without having to open and close the whole dialog box each time. Or sometimes you forget what layer you placed something on, and you simply want to toggle those layers on & off to find it. If the toggling on & off was dynamic, it'd save lots of time.

Cheers!

A dockable layer palette is long overdue.

Yes! Perfect! Didn't have to think a millisecond to buy it, and support the Developer! Not to mention some of the other Add-Ons in the package! What a find! Thanks!

Everyone, coming from Autocad, wonders why AC does not have this feature.

And why is that bad? I could write a huge list of features that are implemented into other applications (like autocad, max, or whatever) and that AC is lacking. For god sake, enough of that "we do it our way in AC", because it is getting nowhere - it is time to admit that some competitors have already outrunned AC in many ways. Admit it and strive to catch up on things. AC community is still modeling flat roofs from mesh and pavements from roofs (me included). How BIM is that?

I thought the the OP was pretty much covered by the Quick View and Quick Layer palettes? Go have a look if you haven't used them yet!
