Showing the Drawing Explorer with Layers Tab


I wanted to write a lisp routine that would show the Drawing Explorer with the Layers tab active as I am not a fan of the layers panel, the command to do this is EXPLAYERS. So, the routine should be simple enough:

(defun c:LL() (command ".explayers") (princ))

But this isn't the case, if I run the command above or type (command "explayers") on the command line the command -LAYER is run. I checked with the command EXPBLOCKS and the same result is achieved. I am curious why this is the case, should the LISP function command not run the command entered as the first parameter just as if a user had typed that particular command on the command line?

I do admit that this is a bit overkill, I could simply edit my .PGP file and assign LL to EXPLAYERS to get around this (this is what I did) but the command above should essentially do the same thing in a somewhat more convoluted way...

Suggestion to the developers - make the drawing explorer dialog box non-modal so that we can control BricsCAD in the background and have the Drawing Explorer window open at the same time.

Origami is the Japanese word for paper folding. ORI means to fold and KAMI means paper and involves the creation of paper forms usually entirely by folding.
