I can't isolate it well enough yet to file a bug, but I'm watching other VW users have that problem once or twice a day.  It's happened to me twice ever.  Both times this week.

 

It must be happening to you, too, David (or people in your office) to make you go and look up the preference in the Vector Script appendix.  

 

Now if we could automate your script to run every time Pref 94 is FALSE…

 

Or just run every 10 minutes :-).

I was wrong. It is documented but they call it "Stack Layers" instead of "Unified View" in the "Vectorworks 2022 Script Function Reference"

 

Stack Layers     94     TRUE or FALSE    Pref

This is interesting:

When in a Sheet layer is the active layer the Staked Layer(Unified View) Option is False but when in a Design Layer is active it changes to True

I wonder if sometimes it fails to switch. 

 

if vs.GetObjectVariableInt(vs.ActLayer(), 154) == 2:
    activetype = 'Sheet Layer '
else:
	activetype = 'Design Layer'
if vs.GetPref(94) == 1: 
	BOOL ='TRUE' 
else:
	BOOL ='FALSE'
sl = ('Stack Layers (Unified View) = '+ BOOL)
if vs.GetPref(95) == 1: 
	BOOL1 ='TRUE' 
else:
	BOOL1 ='FALSE'
sl2d = ('Stack Layers (Unified View) Create 2D Objects = '+BOOL1)
if vs.GetPref(96) == 1: 
	BOOL2 ='TRUE' 
else:
	BOOL2 ='FALSE'
sli = ('Stack Layers (Unified View) Ignore Other Scales = '+BOOL2)
if vs.GetPref(98) == 1: 
	BOOL3 ='TRUE' 
else:
	BOOL3 ='FALSE'
slrv = ('Stack Layers (Unified View) Restore Views = '+BOOL3)
if vs.GetPref(99) == 1: 
	BOOL4 ='TRUE' 
else:
	BOOL4 ='FALSE'
slcv = ('Stack Layers (Unified View) Center View = '+BOOL4)
vs.AlrtDialog('Active Layer type = '+activetype+(' '*47)+sl+(' '*49)+sl2d+(' '*22)+sli+(' '*20)+slrv+(' '*26)+slcv)
