Paper space viewport won't stay in legacy hidden mode

I have this problem where after changing the properties of a viewport in paper space it won't stay in legacy hidden mode after I save the file.  After saving the file all the viewports revert back to "as displayed" and when I print the viewports are in wireframe.  How can I resolve this irritating issue?  I'm using AutoCad Mechanical 2013.  This also happend in 2012.

I tried but could not see the issue you mentioned. Would you please let me know the steps to reproduce and any sample drawing if needed?

Hi there I have exactly the same problem and have tried everything I can think of to solve it.

If you plot with view ports frozen, then you have to switch them all back on to re-select and chose legacy hidden again.

Very annoying and time consuming.  I notice the legacy hidden box greyed out on the plot dialog box.  It  just dosn't save the settings for the next plot.  Any help would be much appreciated.
