Modelspace layer control per viewports

Hello all,

Is there an easy way to switch from a viewport in paperspace to modelspace and have the same layer state show up? I typically run with my paperspace set up with the layers showing how they will print (show lightweights and display plot styles) but I would like to be able to switch to model space and only see the layers that are showing in a particular viewport, to minimize manual layer isolation.

 

I used to know a way to do this.

 

Thanks,

 

P.S. I am using C3D 2011.

Or you could save a Layer State in the viewport, or save a View with layer snapshot in the viewport, and restore it in the model tab.


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

Allen,

 

This is exactly what I wanted. Thank you. Perhaps the name should not be "maximize viewport" as this bottom really does more than that.

Mine is not to reason why. Mine is to remember esoteric commands and system variables.
