New in V8 Model On and New in Layers

Learning all the new stuff in V8 and unable to see what “Model On” and “New Detail On” columns do in the Layers Panel. How is model on different from turning on the visibility of the layer?

hi @intuitionusa did you see this thread?

Short version:
If you work in layouts (and only then does it make sense), you often don’t want to mess up their layer visibility by tweaking layers in model space. Idea: Layouts must stay the way they were set up.
Now there’s a global visibility (turn layer off everywhere) and local visibilities (turn layer off only in model/layout/detail space).
Use the local vis. in model space if you want to preserve your layouts.

I lobbied for this important improvement and I’m super happy it got implemented.
