keep block hidden on save

Postby J-J » Thu Apr 18, 2013 7:31 am

Working on Win7-64 - QCAD 3.0
On a drawing, I have two optional items, each represented by a block. I hide either according to the choice needed to be shown, but after saving and re-opening the drawing, the two blocks are visible again. Is this done on purpose or could it be similar to the manipulation of layers?
That is not the case with layers, when you hide one, it remains hidden after "save / open".

Unlike layers, blocks cannot be hidden in the DXF / DWG format. Therefore this state is not persistence.
