Problem

When laying out new elements in WaterCAD/GEMS for AutoCAD, why do elements automatically go to certain layers instead of going to the current layer?

Solution

In version 7, there was a tool called "Element Properties" which could be uses to control which layer certain WaterCAD elements were automatically sent to. But this tool is no longer available in V8/V8i. If the model was created in version 7 and then opened in V8, the element properties designations may be retained.

To resolve this, you can start a new drawing, import WaterCAD model, re-set all the layers and other AutoCAD tools. It is recommended to lay out all the WaterCAD elements in layer 0.
