How to export each layer to a separate file

It is sometimes desired to export the layers in the original file into separate files. While this is the default behavior in LinkCAD when exporting to Gerber RS-274X, other formats require some more work:

You have to load the input file into LinkCAD, then turn off all but the layer you want to export (the fastest way to do this is to click on the bulb icon in the header row of the layer list to turn off all layers, then turn on the layer you want to export).

Then export the file. Only the enabled layer will be included in the output file.

Instead of clicking on the "Restart" button after the conversion has been completed, select "Back". Enable another layer and export again using a different file name.

Repeat the above procedure for every layer.
