Im expoting a complicated mapping buildup sequence from illustrator. the way im working now is turning on and off the required layers for the buildup. is there to manage the layers that it would save which layers to show and not show on each required image. like in QGIS where there is an option to manage the layers to themes and you can define which layers you want to be shown on such theme. is there such option on illustrator?

Basically, in Illustrator you can set up and use custom views (see View menu) or – more versatile – Layer Visibility variables (see Variables palette).

Good options Kurt. I was thinking about exporting all layers as .psd and using the history panel to create snapshots. But this is better.
