Hi there, 

I am working in the inDesign and illustrator at the moment. I am placing the Ai file into the InDesign. In inDesign i am switching the relevant layers on and off. Now I had to revise the drawing in Ai, I have saved it with different date witch very minor change - no change to set up layers. I have duplicated the window with the original file aside (for reference) and I have placed the new file into the second window. Now I see that she layer dependency is not kept and I have to switch on and off the layers individually which is quite a time-consuming task. Is there anything like match properties or copy layer status so I can get my layers in order?

I would really appreciate your help 🙂 

Thank you so much.

Have you tried InDesign/Edit > Preferences > File Handling > Hide New Layers When Updating or Relinking?
