Updates to Active Layers

Objects maintain their active layer status as you navigate between open windows. When a layer is activated, layers with the same name are activated in any submodels.

Benefits and Description

You must manually activate a layer for any object opened in a new window. The layer you activate is recalled as you navigate between open windows. If that top-level model has any submodels containing layers with the same name, those layers are also activated.

Adding draft content to an active drawing layer adds the appropriate model content to the layer with the same, if one exists in the model of the drawing.
