The ability to remove layer filters exists in 2000 but they must be
removed one at a time. If you bring up the layer manager, at the top
left is the current layer filter with a down arrow and a triple dot
(...) box. Click on the triple dot and a named layer filter menu pops
up. Select a layer filter and delete. If you hold the return key down it
will delete all the filters one at a time. This can take a long time.
Alternatively, you can run a file converter like ACMECAD and convert the
file to the same file type, ie 2000 converted to 2000, and with some
versions of the program it will remove the filters. Open the resulting
file in acad and save it again and the file will drop in size. However
the version of Acmecad is important since some versions do not remove
the layer filters, and as usual save to a new name just in case file
gets corrupted, and do not remove old file until you test new file
A third option is a lisp routine which removes layer filters.
