AutoCAD Question - PLEASE Help?

I have an aerial photo in model space on a frozen layer. I want to be able to unfreeze that layer in paper space without it becoming unfrozen in model space.

I know you can use view port freezing to freeze a layer in paper space that you want turned on in model space, but I would like the opposite.

Any suggestions? Thanks for any help you can provide!


I don't want it unfrozen in model space.

    man I think you're out of luck on this one. if you freeze it modelspace its just frozen, period.

    now if the issue is it slowing your processor time processing the image everytime you open that dwg, (just guessing) you can toggle your image on and off pretty easy. if this is your issue,

    make a toolbutton with this:


    open your vba editor and paste this code into a module. you will need to look up acad.dvb in the help files:


    Sub ImageToggle()

    Dim obj As Object

    Dim msg, Style, Title, Help, Ctxt, response, MyString

    Dim image As AcadRasterImage

    'If ThisDrawing.GetVariable("Ctab") = "Model" Then

    For Each obj In ThisDrawing.ModelSpace

    If TypeOf obj Is AcadRasterImage Then

    Set image = obj

    If image.ImageVisibility = True Then

    image.ImageVisibility = False


    image.ImageVisibility = True

    End If

    End If


    'End If

    End Sub
