Freezing or Thawing Layers in New Viewports

You can set visibility defaults for specific layers in new floating viewports. For example, if all dimensions are on a layer named DIMENSIONS, you can restrict the display of dimensions by freezing the DIMENSIONS layer in all new floating viewports. If you create a viewport that requires dimensions, you can override the default setting by changing the setting in that viewport. Changing the default for layers in new viewports does not affect layers in existing viewports.

  1. From the Format menu, choose Layer.
  2. In the Layer Properties Manager, select the layers to freeze or thaw and choose Show Details.
  3. Select or clear Freeze in New Viewports.
