Turn off active layer in layout sees all layers vanish

exploring the use of Layout which I never have used before, so as to be able to pdf front and right views as one print.

Following video found for mac, layout for v5, she has a layout layers panel as well as normal layers panel, as soon as she selects layout option. I dont get that happen in V5 PC, is this a mac thing ? Also I dont see Layout top right oon my window before selecting it as she has.

this video sees a layer for layout created using a icon, but then having done that I turn off visibility for dims layer which was active layer, and the entire drawing vanishes, not just dims.


Hi Steve - I expect what is happening is the detail views , which are objects that exist on the layer you’re turning off, are being hidden by that action.
