I've been using Named Views for most of AutoCAD's Lifetime: Layer Snapshots are my only way to manage Layers and then There are other important things saved with the Named View (Like UCS, Annotation Scale...even Visual Stye)

Thank you!! This tip will save me sooooo much time!! I've always used paper space with viewport layer states, but always hated having to work through the viewport or with all the layers turned on in model space. This will be such a big help!
