Layouts and Layers

Hello All,


I've got a drawing that has 5 layout tabs. How do I get the layout tabs to show the associated layers for that tab?...for example...


Layout tab #1 - Sheet 1

How do I get this Sheet 1 to show ONLY the Layers associated to Sheet 1?...


Layout tab #2 - Sheet 2

Again...Sheet 2 to show ONLY the layers associated to Sheet 2?

Select each Layout TAB in turn and for each use the LAYER command to make unwanted layers OFF, Its the light bulb icon at the start of the layer line - ON - lit sort of yellow OFF - unlit - a bit blue,

You can also do this for viewports on the same sheet so you can get varying views of the same object all on one sheet, use

VP Freeze for this.
