How to turn off layer in viewport in CAD? How to hide layer in one VP but showing it in other VP? I have one drawing in model space with 7 layers, and I have 2 viewports in layout space with different scale. Can I turn off 3 layers in one VP but have them turned on the other VP?

hi, turn on/off layer in VP is not supported by ZWCAD now, but you can freeze layer in VP, which also let the layer to be invisible in a specific viewport.

how to freeze layer in specific viewport:
1. Switch to layout space, there are several viewports in papaer space, choose one viewport and double click within it
2. Open layer properties manager, choose the layer that you want to be invisible, click VP Freeze column.
3. Then you will find that this layer is invisible in this viewport but still visible in other viewports.
