Saving Layers ON/OFF

141 Views, 3 Replies

When you save the DWF that you are working on in Composer, why will it not save what layers you have turned on/off in Composer? Every time that I re-open a DWF file in composer, every single layer is turned on, regardless of what layers were turned off/on when it was saved in Composer. Is there a way to save the file so that only certain layers are turned on and the remaining are shown as turned off?

There's no way to persist layer states to the DWF at present. This is a great wishlist item though.

I haven't tried this yet, but you may be able to create a DWF that only shows the visible layers by using the DWF Writer Windows System Printer Driver. Wouldn't that be a way to preserve the layer view?

From my experience that does save the layer state, but in the newly created DWF you will not be able to turn the layers back on if you so chose.
