    Saving Layer setup for CAD dwg files

    MarkRogFitz

      I am using Illustrator CS4. I have a number of maps in CAD dwg as line drawings using layers such as Background, Building, Building_Number _Bubble and many more. I can bring the dwg file into Illustrator and set up colours for the different layers, fill the polygons, set the order (which layer prints on top of which layer) etc.

       

      Can I save the layer setup and apply it to the next map which has the same layers but shows a different location?  If so how do I do it?

       

      The result I want is to open the next dwg map in Illustrator and have all the layers appear the same as they did in the first map without resetting each layer individually.
