Non-Plot Classes/Layers

Question

I've been out of using AutoCAD for about a year but i still really miss the non-plot functionality! It was great for having things visible for you the drafter and not having to worry about turning things off when you go to publish.

Here’s an existing wishlist thread requesting this, now over 4 years old. [The earliest request on the forums wishing this is now over 10 years old.]

While not as automatic as a not-plot class would be, I've done this many times in the past by using class overrides. This is assuming you typically edit the design layer through viewports. What I did is to create my "non-plot" classes and set their attributes how I want to see them on design layers. The objects I place in that class, of course, will use all of their attributes "by class". In sheet layer viewports, I would have the classes visible but override the class to have no pen and no fill. I realize there's a bit of work getting viewports setup, but it works well. And yes, viewport styles would help a lot with this. In fact, I think viewport styles would rid the need to for a non-plot class altogether.
