Working with Layers

There are standard EPLAN layers that are always present and cannot be deleted. The layer names and descriptions of these standard layers are also write-protected. The layer names of the standard layers always begin with "EPLAN". For example, the layer for general symbol graphics is called EPLAN300. The other properties of the standard layers, such as color, line type, etc., can be configured on a project basis. You can also create your own layers and define their names and properties.


Prior to changing the layer management settings for a project, you should first export a configuration file. In this way you have saved the default settings and can restore them for those layers by importing them at a later date.


  • You have opened a project.
  • You have opened the layer management: Tab Tools > Command group Management > Layers.
