Visibility tool that can control referenced .dwg file class visibility

Question

I am referencing .dwg files in a drawing and maybe I just don't know what I'm doing (a distinct possibility) but my visibility tool can only affect the state of the layer a reference is on, not the state of the classes within that reference. To do that, I have to go to my "Classes..." button in the properties box and basically guess which linework is associated with the classes listed. Very tedious... I'm certain there are work-arounds, but I'm guessing none that will allow me to update the referenced file easily.

Can the visibility tool be modified so that it can control the state of any line within a drawing, referenced or not? (Either that or can someone correct me?)

Any feedback is appreciated!

What method are you referencing in the DWG with?

Are you able to select the DWG components separately or do they appear as one combined object?

I am importing and checking the reference box.

I cannot select the DWG components individually, they appear combined/grouped.

Bumping this post - has this been added in 2019 yet? I'm trying to turn off the visibility of layers with the Visibility tool. I have 3 .dwg's directly imported into a .vwx file that is then viewported into another .vwx file. 

 

-Thanks
