Check overlapping layers


When working online, you can use this option to check whether any objects are assigned to more than one layer. This is useful in two ways:


The option can be accessed:

  • From the Action > Check overlapping layers menu
  • Using the Toolbar icon

When selected, the CAST Architecture Checker will query the CAST Analysis Service (via the current connection to the CAST Management Service) and return all objects that match multiple layers.


Only content that matches the chosen criteria will be displayed.

Notes - If you are not working online, you will be prompted to connect.
