The command is Hot Keyed to CTRL 1 allowing it to be applied to any data selection that you make quickly and easily.

Command Interface Description

The Isolate Layers command has no user interface. The command icon on the RPS Data Prep menu ribbon will turn Yellow when the Isolate function is active and non yellow when inactive. You can click the command icon or use the CTRL 1 shortcut to apply.



To use the command, simply select any number of objects that are on the layer(s) that you wish to isolate and either click the command icon on the menu or use the CTRL 1 shortcut to activate / deactivate the isolation of the layers.
