Can AutoCAD ignore snap-funcions for certain layers?

  1. i want to see a certain layer, but osnap should ignore the elements of this
    layer, while drawing in another layer.

    Karin -

    Alas, no, but it would certainly be useful. As of version 2008, you can
    tell AutoCAD to ignore osnaps in hatch objects, but that's it.

    I deal with this by leaving osnaps turned off, setting MBUTTONPAN = 0,
    and using the middle mouse wheel (or button) to bring up the osnap menu
    once I get right on the object I want, instead of having osnaps
    highlight every endpoint, midpoint, etc., that the cursor passes over.

    Middle button-E for endpoint, middle-button-I for intersection, etc.

  3. No. Another thing they should have developed over the years instead of
    monkeying with button graphics, IMHO. Other cad packages have numerous
    show/snap options.
