AutoCad 2011 has command isolate or hide object. But this isolate or hide object in all: model space and all viewports. Is it possible to freeze object (not layer) only in one paticular viewport?
So if the object was created on the zero layer and just that object was inserted on its own layer (separate from the other identical objects' layer), then it could be frozen in some viewports and not in others. What are you trying to accomplish exactly? Perhaps there's a better way...
