Access Methods

Button

Summary

Isolates the layer of a selected object in the current viewport by freezing the layer in all but the current viewport. You can choose to isolate all layouts or only the current layout.

This command automates the process of using VP Freeze in the Layer Properties Manager. You select an object on each layer to be frozen in other layout viewports.

Note LAYVPI works only when TILEMODE is set to 0 and when two or more paper space viewports are defined.
