I am creating our PDFs from AutoCAD drawings and in Acrobat Pro I would like to be able to select multiple layers to toggle their initial visibility settings. Some layers I wish to be on soon as the pdf is opened other toggled on and off as necessary. 

I have only been able to select all from the edit menu.

I have tried using combinations of shift, alt, and ctrl to no avail.

can anyone help with just selecting multiple specific layers or even deselecting layers. I have attached a file to view.

thanks!

I am not aware of a mechanism to select more than one layer. You can however set the layer state via a JavaScript, so if this is something that you have to do on a regular basis, you could write a script that sets the initial configuration. Such a script could be triggered via a menu item, or executed via a custom command or the action wizard.
