Editing Layer Attributes

electrosteam
Doing multiple versions of the same theme, and running into situation of going back and altering Layer Attributes for multiple layers on multiple drawings.

For Layer Attributes:
 - can all the layers in a drawing be shown in a tabular form ?
 - and edited ?
 - is there a method to set a specific attribute to a nominated value on all layers in the drawing ?

Using the Command Line would be Ok for me.

My LC 2.1.2 on Lubuntu 17.10 is working fine, and I have influenced some friends to try it out.

another table than the Layer List? I'm afraid no.

no table, so no edit, except in the Layer List

Not inside LibreCAD I think.

With some hacker skills and DXF knowledge one can do a search/replace in path, DXF is a simple ascii format text file. But without care, this can make DXF files unreadable, so be sure to have backups before running a search/replace tool.

Armin,
Thanks, I had searched and found nothing, so your comments were expected.
No matter, this lesson has taught me to think carefully about the details -before- doing lots of work !
