Layer Naming Restrictions

Here are some layer naming restrictions when creating or editing layers while in the Layer Properties Manager…

  • 1) The most obvious restriction is that you cannot have 2 layers named that have the same name.
  • 2) Certain characters are restricted; <>/\”:;?*|,=’
  • 3) Limits of 255 characters (as tested in AutoCAD 2012)
