    Default Layer States

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Is it possible to transfer layer states of a viewport to model space? I have a drawing with several hundred layers and would like to match the layer states in model space as they appear in paper space. All layers in model space are turned on.

    Here is what happens in Acad 2008.

    In a viewport on a layout I have some layers frozen in the current viewpoert. In the Layerstate dialog I save this as a new state. Then I can restore this state in other viewports or in modelspace (the Model tab).

    Maybe you where in paperspace, not inside the viewport when you saved the state? Or maybe I didn't understand the question

    When a layer state is saved, where am I able to locate that file?

    Layer states are stored i the drawing, in the dwg file.
    You have to use Export/Import.
    Does it look like this in 2007?

    Yes. Will this work on a drawing which is an xref?
