Toggline Corridors in an XREF'd Drawing

Is there a way to toggle visibility of a corridor in a drawing where the model has been Xref'd into?


The problem I am having is that we have one Model drawing that has a corridor.

 

This Model is xref'd into multiple drawings.  Not all drawings should show the corridor.

 

The only way I have found so far is to go into model and toggle the corridor on and off depending on which drawing I want to print or view.  It creates problems when you want to run a Publish of multiple drawings because you always have to goof with the Model file.  This seems a bit of a step back from being able to toggle visibility of objects in a drawing file with an xref atached and leaving it that way and ready to be printed at any time.

 

Thanks.

In the corridor object style the layers can be set to something such as C-Road-Corr and then can be frozen in drawings as desired assuming the xref is attached on layer zero and Visretain is set to 1 in the dwg's referencing corridor source dwg.

My workflow is exactly like Jay's.  We have our corridor object mapped to it's own layer.

Sounds like a plan. I appreciate it.

Set modifiers for Object layers in your template - very useful
