Does anyone know how to print a LIST of all the layers. I am not asking how to print the document or the individual layers in a document. I would like to know how to print a LAYER LIST........Anyone?
I have old versions 8 thru CS4, both PC and MAC.......this drawing was created in CS2......but I don't think that matters.........Sometimes you need a list of layers to quickly see all the layers names or status in a drawing........you can do this in Autocad but I don't know how to do this in AI. This drawing has 102 layers.............SCREENSHOT is not an option here...............
Probably not exactly what you‘re going to do, but in recent versions of Illustrator you may save a copy of the file, delete all objects in that file, then save as .svg.
At the bottom of the SVG Options dialog, click the Show SVG code button and see if that text file is something you can use.
this script will add a text frame with a list of layer names
var idoc = app.activeDocument; var itext = idoc.textFrames.add(); itext.contents = ""; var layerCount = idoc.layers.length; for (i=0; i<layerCount; i++) itext.contents += "Layer " + i + ": " + idoc.layers[i].name + "\r";
