Drawings are easier to interpret if you set standards to enforce consistency. You can set standards for layer names, dimension styles, and other elements; check drawings against these standards; and then change any properties that do not conform.
To set standards, you create a file that defines properties for layers, dimension styles, linetypes, and text styles, and you save it as a standards file with the .dws file name extension.
You can audit a drawing file for violations of standards and then fix violations. The Batch Standards Checker audits more than one file at a time.
You can reorganize a drawing's layers to match a set of layer standards.
