Start/Stop All SVS Layers at the Same Time

How many of you are (like me) dealing with a lot of virtual layers and (like me) get tired of activating and deactivating them?

Every time you create or update any layer, you have to deactivate every other layer.

Here's a solution.

You can use the svscmd.exe command-line utility to activate/deactivate layers, but there is no option to deactivate all running layers at one time.

I wrote a small "svskill" Perl script, which can be used to deactivate all running layers. You can also start all layers, which are marked as "automatic startup".

The compiled .exe file is a binary of the script. Just copy it to your PATH and use it with:

svskill [start|stop]

Did you ever try:

svscmd * A

or svscmd * D -F

... and not documented - with the small script just the "autostart" layers are started.

Using the Admin utility, select all (ctl-A) then right click and select activate or deactivate.

If you install the SVS Trinket, you get an option in the task bar icon that lets you de-activate all.
