If you do a  REGEN, does the layer become visable? If so, check your REGENAUTO setting, it may be turned off.

my regen auto is on.  but my problem is when i turn a layer off it still shows in model space.  if i freeze the layer then it turns off but if i simply turn the layer off it is still visible.

There is a setting for layers that are off to either not display, or lock and fade.  Is it doing the lock and fade for you?

Credit where credit is due! Give kudos or accept as solution whenever you can.

If the components of the object are on different layers turning off the insert layer would not turn off the component layer.




default layer for point insert = V-node

marker style layer  = c-topo-spot

label style layer = V-node-text


turn "off" v-node and the point and label style remain. freeze v-node they all go.


Think of c3d ojects as nested blocks made of components on thier own layers and it has a singular insert point
