This program is slowly making me crazy.
I thought viewport layers were supposed to totally specify what layers to let through, no matter what settings there were in the design director.
In my case, I'm using the viewport to show a hidden line view of a 3D model, but with Renderable Objects on to let through the dimensions.
What's been happening is that a particular layer won't show up in the viewport, if its a 3D object (thickness based) even though its selected in the viewport properties, until and unless its also on in the design director. In other words, the viewport layers are subtractive, rather than being a complete replacement for the design director layer layout.
The only objects that are immune from this effect are the 2D / dimensional objects. I can specify them to show up and they will, no matter the setting in the design director.
To me this seems like a bug or oversight, but perhaps someone can explain logically why objects in the viewport should be dependent on the design director outside the viewport.
