Nice, but not what I want.

I want labels to come in on the layer specified in the label style.  I think the OP's request is similar.

I've just added this capability to Sincpac. It will be available in the next release, due out soon.

Very nice.
What version of the software is this going to be in?

It will be in all currently supported versions (2010+). It is currently limited to the Note Labels only.

What about a routine for the marker styles as well?  The note label style and marker style would then be segregated onto individual layers.

Yes, I re-read your initial post this morning and saw that you had mentioned the markers. I will add those to the code. Now, these are only the markers associated with a Note Label, correct?

OK, after researching this, I don't see a normal method to do this. The Marker is actually a part of the NoteLabel and is not designed to be added to the drawing unconnected from a parent object.

The object layer in drawing settings is the base layer for all your notes (call it ob-note), Object > General Note Label. When you create your Note Label Style you can specify the layer (la-note-1) on the General tab. If you create a second Note Label Style you can change the layer (la-note-2) on the General tab. Turning off just la-note-1 turns off the first note and leaves the second note on. Turning off ob-note turns all of them off regardless of on/off freeze/thaw on the sub-layer. Same with the marker style - which can be a different layer and controled individually as well. One note can be controled by ob-text (for all), la-note-1 (for just the note on that style) and mk-note-1 (for just the marker on that style). Basically you need to create as many styles as you'd require layers - PITA. For C3D2012: Arrowheads (in B&D line labels) and leaders for drag state use the plot style for the object layer - so be mindful of not leaving it on 0 if you have 0/white set super thick.
