Xref does not respect nested layer setup
I am organising scenes with nested layers - this is a good new feature. However, it becomes useless when it does not translate through when you xref the scene into another scene. What happens is that any layer nesting is completely ignored / lost. thats not good. a lot of the suggestions in this category are good and they would make this feature so much more user friendly
You also lost hirachy while merge objects in nested layer. I have reported this as a bug to AD.
