Wouldn't it be nice if you could group layers like you can group feature or parts on the model tree?

The reason for the separate ?default datums? and ?other datums? layers is to allow the user to turn off the datum features that are always present in any part, and view only the datum features that have been created to drive the model. The key is that the default datums are NOT on the ?all datums? layer in the start part.

While we are on this layer discussion I might add, I have found no value for empty layers. I have seen parts with all the layers in place and a config.pro that automatically populates them. If I am looking for a copy geom and I click the copy_geom layer I see maybe 15 parts out of 1500 in my top assembly that show up. If I had a copy_geom layer in every part I would have to scroll down through 1500 parts to find my copy geom I was looking for. So any layer that is empty I delete. Proe creates one automatically when I create the feature.
