Is there a way to turn layers on and off in a DWG Model spec?

The rough solution could be to use a few different dwg templates.

On the drawing specification, we use boolean variables to turn layers on or off. Find your layer and assign a boolean to the line that says "Show". However, it doesn't always behave as we tell it to sometimes ignoring the rules completely.

 

I have noticed that it sometimes works for layers on the drawing sheet, but it never suppresses layers on the background sheets.
