Sub-layers

I'd like to be able to toggle groups of layers on or off.  For example, I have a topography layer for each elevation increment.  I'd like to have a Topo Group or Topo Collection I could hide or show.

We are considering the idea of creating 'views'. A 'view' would be combination of settings and layers (for instance, heights and part numbers visible, only layer 1 and 2).

However, this would perhaps make things a bit complicated for beginners. We should find a balance between the learning curve and the functionality.

Perhaps it might be possible to compartmentalise some of the more advanced functions such as this, and be able to switch them on/off. That way, those less experienced could work their way up to them.

At this stage, I would be happy just to have the functionality that LDL has suggested.

It would really be nice if the layers can be nested like the windows explorer folder list, that would make it very easy to turn on or off a folder and all of its contents and subfolders

I completely agree with LDL. Nesting layers/sub-layers etc as in a tree hierarchy, similar to a table of contents, would be invaluable.
