Hi,
Object in layer that been switched off can be edit. when using Select All, you can select all the object, even if its off, and do editing, like MOVE. This is normal, it's the way how LAYOFF works.

If you don't want to edit them, please use layer lock (LAYLCK) or layer freeze (LAYFRZ). then the objects will no longer be editable.

when i isolate a layer and copy all objects in that specific layer, blocks in other layers are also getting selected and available for editing. I want to isolate the layers and other layers have to be locked at the same time.Is this possible in ZWCAD?bala2011-08-03 01:03:20

If you want to isolate layer with other layer locked, please use LAYISO command, then input S for settings, then input L for "Lock and fade" option and enter a fade value, the larger value, the other layer will be more fade out.

Please try this again, thanks!
