CLAYOUT (System Variable)

Sets the current layout.

Saved in:Drawing
Initial value:Varies

The value for CLAYOUT consists of two parts: the layout name and the handle. For example

Enter new value for CLAYOUT <"Model*22">:

In this case, Model is the name of the layout and 22 is the handle (the * is a separator). You can switch to this tab either by entering Model or *22. The handle is exposed as a convenience for developers.

Note: Internally, AutoCAD treats the Model tab as a special layout tab.
