Wildfire 2: Layer issue in Drawing mode

In Wildfire 2.0, I can't seem to blank the layer that my Cosmetic sketch
features were placed on automatically during the modeling process, in a
Detailed drawing view. Even after setting the Detailed view to be
independent of its parent, the Cosmetic layer cannot be blanked only in the
Detailed view. If I blank the Cosmetic layer in the parent view of the
Detailed view only, then it still blanks it in the Detailed view even after
having set it to be independent as previously stated above.
The same behavior seems to hold true for other layers such as my datum curve
layer, etc.
Does anyone know a workaround for this problem--other than using the
Views-Simplify functionality which I like to avoid at all cause since it
creates a 'hidden instance' of the drawing model and utilizes it for the
'simplified view'?

I don't believe it has any bearing on layers or layer display.
Second, the layer tree gives you access to not only the overall layers incorporated from the model/assembly into the drawing but to the layers in the models themselves with the dropdown where you see . In this list layered objects, you'll also find some view names. If you click on the one for the detailed view, you'll see its individual setting which may be different and can be set differently from the main drawing layers. They may, in fact, all be turned on. In that case, you could blank them all except the cosmetic layer and see if that helps. It may even give you some message about setting view layers independently of the drawing layer status. In any case, the Settings menu has gotten more complex over the years and is well worth investigating.
