Good Gentlemen.

I have an issue that seems to be quite common amoungst my design team.

We often like to do change the layers of parts that are not the focus of our drawing-"ghosting out", to highlight what we would like to highlight


Now this is an easy concept to understand.

please see attached



>@ drawing level , select sub-assembly in tree and change layer


now my issue is sometimes Solidworks decides it is going to change the layer but it does not reflect in the drawing space

> my next solution would be then is to target the parts in the sub-assemblies and change the layer


These two steps to achieve a layered part or assembly work the majority of the time; I am looking for a solution for when this does not work as it has been doing recently .


Its very temperamental
