... until we have a better solution
This "How to" shows maybe one of thousand ways to have always the same Basic Layer List in your drawings - but it is fast, minimizes mistakes and brings you to a kind of standard.
Open a new drawing - create your own Layer List like this sample or use/modifier this sample list what you can download and use for free.
"Save it as" in your Library Folder. (I used the name "Layer List.dxf" in my personal Library Folder what is saved in my Folder "my standards")
To use it:
Open a new drawing - open the Library - and drag and drop this Library Item into your new drawing.
You will see that all Layer are now also exist in your new drawing and they are ready to go. The Library Item (Layer List) will appear as a Block in the Block List. If you like to delete it - go for it. The Layer List will stay in your drawing.
Why are my Layer in a numerical order? Just to have them always on top of the list and all additional layer are then below my standard list. If you also like it - keep it on this way - if you don't like it name your Layer however it makes sense to you.
