I have a drawing of a building with many layers that I use to produce several pages of PDFs. For example, I'll enable the first floor and electrical layers and export that as a PDF, then I'll disable those layers, enable second floor and electrical and export, then first floor and plumbing then export, etc.
This process is very tedious and error prone each time I make an modification to the drawing, and I'm wondering if there's a way to automate the process of enabling/disabling layers and exporting PDFs with specified names. Something like a simple macro?
It is possible to run LibreCAD from command line.
But I think it's not possible to switch layers on/off trough this process.
I think this was intended to bulk convert a bunch of DXF files to PDF.
Don't remember yet if there is a user documentation anywhere.
But you can ease the process by using the Layer List Filter.
By using a smart layer name scheme, you can use the filter to hide unwanted layers and use the tool buttons to enable/disable all visible layers with one click.
