in 2012 I saved a layerstate and it shows in the dialog but if I change the stet to another and go back none of the settings are held. Is this a known problem?
Are you trying to apply the layer state as viewport overrides? If so. You'd have to be in an active viewport for them to take effect.
I just want to make sure that's what you're doing.
Specifically, no I am not trying to set vport layers, but I tried both checked and unchecked. All I am doing setting my global freeze thaw >> add a new layer state>> name it>> close>> reset the other state>> then try to reset the new one and nothing is frozen?
Also, Did have the overide check box hose me? all the lines are blue like I have a vport saved.
I believe that's it. If you have that box checked when you save the Layer State. That's the way it will be treated. At least I think so. I don't use viewport overrides much myself.
