Today’s good question comes from Alex. He was happy to learn about the ability to disable Layer Evaluation. However, even after implementing the procedure I described in my previous post, Alex was still receiving the Unreconciled New Layers notification.
Oops… my bad. When I was testing the procedure for my Layer Evaluation post, I was using drawings that had no existing unreconciled layers. So, turning off layer evaluation was enough. However, as Alex discovered, if you open a drawing with existing unreconciled layers, the layer notification still displays. To disable layer notification, you’ll need to add the following line of code to the acaddoc.lsp file:
(setvar "LAYERNOTIFY" 0)
For more information about acaddoc.lsp and layer evaluation, view my previous post.
Even after you open a drawing with this code in the acaddoc.lsp file, the layer notification bubble may still appear. However, after you save and reopen the drawing, it should be gone... for good... Or, at least until you reenable LAYEREVAL and LAYERNOTIFY.
