Applied Parameters: None


This command is used to isolate and display layers upon which selected objects reside.


This command is accessed from the CAMtastic Editor by choosing the View » Layers » Isolate Object Layer command from the main menus.


After launching the command, the cursor will change to a square and you will be prompted to select objects. Simply click on an object to select it. Clicking away from an object allows you to drag a selection area, for including multiple objects in the selection. Selection is cumulative.

Once all required objects have been selected, right-click. Only the layers upon which the selected objects reside will be displayed. All other layers will be turned OFF.

Continue to select further objects to isolate the remaining layers still further, or right-click, or press Esc, to exit.
