Can you use the Layer State manager within viewports?

Got a question from a client, and I can't find a way to make it work. An ex-coworker said something to me about it, but I haven't figured out how to use it.

 

Let's say you create a floor plan, and you use the Layer State manager to separate the framing plan, finish plan, reflected ceiling plan, etc. Now, when you go to create a sheet, you xref this plan into model space with all of the layers thawed/on, go to your titleblock in paper space and make a viewport.

 

Currently, if I click into a viewport and use the Layer State manager to show just the information of the RCP, it will freeze all of the layers I don't need, but it will freeze those layers in model space, instead of just within the viewport. It gets very time consuming doing it the way I always understood to do it; making sure all layers are thawed/on in model space, and then going into each viewport and manually VP-freezing each layer I don't need.

 

So can Layer States be set up to work within viewports, to only have those layers VP-frozen?

Never mind, I figured it out. Stupid me making threads before trying out all the options first.
