    Is there a way to determine the current layer combination?
    I can understand there is no GLOB libpart parameter for it as an object does not belong to a layer combination.

    But is there a REQUEST or APPLICATION query that can determine what the layer combination is.

    My desire is to have an object that can appear different in different layer combinations.

    For example, furniture that can appear detailed on a presentation plan but simpler on a standard plan.
    Or my real desire is to have a text object that can move to a different location – I can do this now with different scales, but would really like to do this based on the layer combination.

    I know it can be done with MVO settings, but I am trying to avoid this if possible.

    Barry.

    No, there isn’t. Layer combinations are designed to filter the elements, not to change them.

    Thanks Peter.
    That is what I thought.
    I was just hoping there may be some way to find the current layer combination that I didn’t know about.
    It could be a quite handy thing to be able to do.
