Regen in layout viewport does not work

Hello everyone

My layers in layout viewport are displayed in wrong order even after I use REGEN or REGENALL command. 

 

I am working with drawing file with quite big amount of layers (about 100+ including layers of 7 xrefs) and because I want to use different layer settings for each printed drawing I work directly in the layout viewports instead of model space so I don't have to switch on/off countless layers all the time. \

 

The problem is that quite often layers just turn into wrong draw order and don't come back even if I hit REGEN or REGENALL command. To solve this I have to zoom out, jump out of the viewport by doubleklick outside, use REGENALL command and then jump back to viewport so I can keep on working. This is extremely time consuming especially if it happens every 3 minutes, over and over again. 

 

Does anyone have the same or similar problem? Maybe some tips for variables or settings to try? Thanks

Read up on DRAWORDERCTL in help, and set SORTENTS to 51 (or 127).
