Freeze new layers in all viewports?

I'm working on a house plan and dont have all my layers in the drawing yet. Every time I create a new layer I need to go to every viewport in every layout and freeze it so it does not show up... Is there a way to make it so every new layer is automatically frozen in all viewports? Thanks, Scott<-

Great thanks! Funny that you cant use it on the Model Tab. Oh Well, it does what I need... Thanks!

Also make not when you are creating new viewports (on a layout) you can set a layer's default to be frozen in that viewport in the Layer Properties Manager dialog box (see attached)... which is similar to using VPLAYER's Vpvisdflt option or if the layer doesn't exist use VPLAYER's Newfrz option (which creates the layer and set's it's default visibility to be frozen in new viewports). Lastly the reason VPLAYER (and the settings in the attached PNG file are not available on the Model tab, is because a layer's property settings there would be for all spaces (layouts and model)... read: if you freeze a layer it is frozen throughout. -- Tracy W.

VPlayer=ViewPort.... . If you want model control, try LAYER. -- Dean Saadallah Add-on products for LT http://www.pendean.com/lt --
