I took a look at what you sent me and gave it a test to see if I could add MVP's. I don't think in any way that this is what you are after, but I really have to get a lot of work done today, so I can't do more than prove that the lisp functions fine. I took your pre-table block and added some view parameters and created a default/ master one too (i do this in a ll my blocks). Although I'm sure it does not do what you are after, it does prove the MVP works in this block. If you empty the table of data as the tip I posted, you could add MVP's to that block too, I'm sure. Then at the end, repopulate the block table and test.
If you have access to AutoCAD 2011 (thru subscription), you could always develop blocks with the older build (v1.3, 24.10.09), and then use the blocks in either of the later versions - that's how I roll.
I might try that.
I've just been trying to play with your test2.dwg, selecting view states, add/remove objects. Just to see if that would work, and I was making some headway until acad just crashed.
The new version didn't work for me in 2012. It might or might not work to add the visibility states. If they got added, working through the steps resulted in visibility states still affecting other objects that should have been under control by other visibility states.
None of these extra visiblity states is technically necessary though. Just longer names for the existing visibility states of a single visibilty parameter. It might even be faster to create.

The program is a remarkable effort but unfortunately, AutoCAD changes apparently have short circuited the effort.
Links for 1.5 are about a dozen or so posts previous.
Scroll up or back a page or two depending on how many posts you have elected to show.
Here is the last known download page. I have had no major issues using v1.3 within AutoCAD 2011. My blocks work perfectly, even in AutoCAD 2013, however I occasionally lock up AutoCAD 2011 while I create them. I have learned to create in a seperate drawing form my source files. I do a lot of copy paste from my source file drawing to a new drawing, then open the block editor in the new drawing and then load the visibility add lisp. If you search my posts, you will find several other important tips for using this program. I think I might be one of the most experienced users since I have spent over a year now with it, creating dynamic blocks 8 hours a day. If you can use 2011 and v1.3, I am sure you can make this work.
Hope this helps, Ron
Thank for reply. I found interesting and saved for later your tips and notes.
Unfortunatelly I don't have neither 2010 or 2011 ver of AutoCAD, so block properties are not going to be supported in my new block, which is not a good sign to me. I will have to use Lookup instead.
The only way I can work with any version is 2007. It's shame that Autodesk changed something in 2012 and plus version to the point that Nikolay's and Andrey's lisp routine doesn't work
Have you tried the 1.4 version ? from that website ?
Thanks again in advance for any work and future info.
