With Creo 7, you can control the display state of drawing layers when switching from the top model drawing to individual view mode. This configuration option helps to copy the drawing layer visibility status to individual view and save a lot of time, especially when only few changes are needed.

You can set the value of the def_shown_layers_in_view option to one of the following to get the desired behavior and save time on setting layer visibility:

  1. all*—All the layers are displayed.
  2. drawing—The layer’s state is copied from the drawing.
  3. none—All the layers are hidden.
