That actually comes down to a wish that I wanted to add to a wishlist, but wanted to have some feedback first.
What do you guys think about creating Layer Combinations with criteria? Instead of trying to add new functionality to GO we could just change Layers which were created specifically for visibility settings.
Let's say you have a naming convention for your layers (E.g. We use prefixes for specific elements categories ' 1 | 1 | External Walls ') and then you could use a criteria to determine in which Layer Comb you would like to see which layers - By using "Begins with" in that case.
This would save some time and perhaps help to avoid some mistakes when creating new layers and then having to remember to update specific Layer Combinations.
What do you think? Is it worth creating a wish?
I don't get it.
So you have 3 layers all with the same prefix and you want to hide those layers that "Begin With... 1|1|".
That is fine and all of those layers will hide.
Now what happens when you want another layer combination that shows just one of those layers but hides the other two?
How would you do this except for creating criteria that looks at the whole layer name?
Or they would all need different prefixes.
So why have the prefixes in the first place?
Maybe I just don't understand what you mean.
Layer combinations are so much easier and it is only one click per layer combination to show or hide a new layer.
In fact you can do it now in the Attribute Manager by selecting multiple layer combinations and turning a layer on of off in all of them at once.
