Hi all -
I have looked high and low for a solution to this, and found a dearth of information on the subject. However, everything is conflicting and it doesn't seem like there is a good solution. I'm hoping ACA 2012 has a simple function that will solve this issue... and it boggles my mind that it doesn't seem to be a feature.
Each file I have has a set of layer states. Each file has a couple of layouts - a proper architectural drawing and then a presentation plan. There's a "Print" and "Presentation" layer state, then, in each file.
My question is: How can I assign the layer state to the viewport? I use the sheet set manager to navigate/print and I need to be able to output both the presentation and print drawings in one shot... but if I'm working in model space and have my "Working" layer state turned on, it changes in both my viewports, and the prints end up being a big mess. This is really a basic function, fundamental to how architects work, and it's surprising that it's not a simple parameter in the properties of the viewport, like scale or plot style table.
