Hello,
I have the following problem where I'm stuck.
I have a drawing with multiple layouts.
There are several detail viewports in these layouts.
However, these details should not be shown on all layouts.

So I thought about putting it on an extra layer, then I can turn it on and off.
It does not work. The border goes away, but not the content.
Nor does it work to set the layers to not printable. Will be printed anyway.

Maybe someone has advise for that.
Greetings and thanks
Bernd.

You could set the property "On" to "No" for the viewport you do not want, but why not just delete it?

The objects in the model area are not on this layer,
only the geometry of the viewport (AF), so it doesn't work.

Turn off the viewports!
(Why should the AF even remain if they shouldn't depict anything?)
Use the FILTER command to select all AF on LayerXY.
Object: viewport
Layer: MyLayer
[Apply to] Object Selection:
ALL
Then turn the AF OFF using the Properties palette (Ctrl + 1).

Thanks for the quick replies,
Unfortunately, it's not that simple.

The layouts show an assembly to which a supplier delivers, for example, a lasered sheet metal,
the other the attachments.
I now need the drawing with everything for our customer, the supplier only wants the sheet metal and the fitter only wants the add-on parts.
With control by layer, I could then operate all of them from one drawing.

Could is dream (often very beautiful)

Going is reality (not always easy and pleasant)

You could also create an extra layout for everyone, but then you have other problems that you have to solve.

A small program to switch the windows on / off would be possible,
The layer name serves as a criterion. it doesn't work with standard commands.

I believe that CrossCreek simply forgot to look at the layer manager while selecting the model area within a view window (double-click in the view window).

Then the additional columns appear in the layer manager (which are sometimes even hidden on the right), in which the layers for the "active" view window can be switched on or off separately.

The layer status can also be saved in the layer manager for different purposes in the same layout.
Or just separate layouts with the corresponding layer switching.

I wanted to attach a file, but have already shut down the box.
