All layers on

i have searched several different ways, how do i turn all layers on(make them visible) with out individually clicking each one? this can be helpful on a large file when looking for a particular entity. i know my layer names should tell me where they are, but sometimes something gets created on an errant layer by mistake.

Use a command line macro:
-Layer On * Enter

The leading hyphen is important

The Layer toolbar has a button for this macro already.

thanks. replacing on with off turns them all off except the current layer as well. cool! control a and control q for me.

thanks margaret, i see that now. that would mean clicking a new tool bar to get to it though. for this particular use the shortcut is faster.

True, but it might help someone else who is a toolbar junkie.
