Benefits and Description

Use the include layer status checkbox to control layer visibilities for combined states. This gives you flexibility in organizing 3D annotations, including driving dimension annotations within geometry features.

Layer visibilities are defined independently from a combined state. When you select include layer status, you assign the status of all layers to the combined state, When the combined state is later selected for viewing, the layer visibilities change to reflect the as-defined status.
