I have two people who have the same problem. The filters in the layer manager don't work. In the Layer Manager, they will select an XREF to only see those layers, and nothing happens. I am sure there is some easy solution to this problem, but it eludes me.
Thanks so much!

How many layers are in the drawings having issues?
Is the MAXSORT sys. var. value set greater than the total # of drawing layers?
If not try increasing MAXSORT and see if that helps as Layer Filters won't function properly if they ALL can't be sorted.
Thanks for the response.
MAXSORT is set to 20000 which is much larger than the number of layers in the drawing.
I just changed it to a couple of other numbers, and it didn't seem to change anything.
Hmm, In Layer Manager click settings (wrench upper right) & try checking "Apply layer filter to toolbar".
Having this unchecked (which makes no logical sense) can also make them hiccup.
I have this same problem except when I hit the settings 'wrench' nothing happens. AutoCAD will act like it's not responding (screen is frozen) until I hit the escape key, then it goes to the base state.
Any thoughts? Is there another way to get to Layer Manager Settings?
Weird, the only way I can seem to get the wrench to not work is if I also have the Layer States Manager open. If I close that it works again.
Another means of accessing the Layer Settings is to enter CLASSICLAYER and try using the Settings button on lower left of the Classic dialog.
I Tried that (infact I'm currently using the classic dialog because it's the only way I can filter anything) and the same thing happens when you hit the settings button; semi-crash until you hit escape.
I have ACAD 2014 on Windows 7 64-bit
I'm having the same problem here with layer filter freezing my screen...
Do you managed to solve it without use CLASSICLAYER ?
ALT + SPACEBAR, then M, then arrow keys left or right. If it is truly off screen, it will come floating back.
