Display Layers using boolean 'and' instead of 'or'
« on: August 13, 2014, 05:38:35 PM »

Object 1 belongs to Layers: Project 1, 2013, incomplete
Object 2 belongs to Layers: Project 2, 2013, Complete

Currently if I select Layers: Project 1, 2013, Incomplete, both Object 1 and Object 2 are displayed.  This is what I am calling a boolean 'or'.  If an object belongs to any of the Layers it is displayed.  I need to be able to display objects that must belong to all selected Layers.

Any help will be extremely appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

It seems like when you select the "incomplete" layer, the "completed" layer was already selected. So, shapes on both layers will be visible. 

Selecting a layer does not deselect the other layers. That has to be done on an individual basis.

If that is the desired operation, then, it will take some development effort. Perhaps in "ThePage" shapesheet, or else with VBA code.
