I've been debugging an issue with "no print" layers printing all morning. I have "no print" layers in my model space drawing. When I create a sheet, it's brought into the paperspace layout as an xref. If I plot a sheet to PDF, it's fine. When I publish my drawing set as a PDF, the first page with an instance of the no print layer will work correctly (not print that layer). But any subsequent instance in the drawing set will print anyways. I've tested this and it seems consistent, even when changing the pages that print. For example, if Page 4,5,and 6 are published, Page 5 won't work correctly. But, if Pages 5, 6 and 7 are published, it will.

What is the solution for this? I'm running AutoCAD 2022 OEM (Microvellum). Thanks.
