Layer Comps like Photoshop but for Illustrator. If you do this, it should fix the problem of showing all the layers when I toggle the solo on and off. I love the solo but it would be nice if the solo remembered what layers were already off when I toggled the solo on. If this was try then when I toggle the solo off, the off layers should stay off.
I support this.
Ditto... Layer comps in Illustrator would be wonderful!! Helpful for stepping through projects, exporting and creating tutorials.

I agree, it would be extremely helpful in comparing alternative designs to myself and others in making creative decisions. It should't be too hard to implement.

Being able to remember the zoom level and which layers are on or off is good.
But I'd like to add, it'd be MUCH BETTER if you could also the layer comps what you want (you can't use a dash? Really?), and if you were able to rearrange their order.
Layer Comps in Ai like in PS could be really valuable.
I hope that it will be also available in the CreativeCloud asset viewer, so you can also share a document with multiple layer comp and ask the client to choose one or the other with only working on a single file.
In fact, i would say, if layer composition make sense in Ps it SHOULD also works in Ai
I agree, it could also help when placing an Ai doc in Ps or InDD and active one composition or another to show different version of one single document.

Amen. I would use compositions to capture the contents of frames in a sequence. Without compositions, after I change something, I have to go through the tedious and error prone process for each frame of showing/hiding layers before copying and pasting the frame into my Word document.
Definite asset- please develop this!
I completely agree,
In addition, this layer composition could be used in the export dialog box as option. You may use some layers for working and want to export only some layers for generate usable pictures/illustration.
It should also be key to have them in CC browser so when you share illustration for reviewing, people can active one composition or another...
So please, make this feature coming asap
I'm still waiting for a feature which photoshop has for years: layer compositions. It would be so helpfull to save the visibility of layers.
The feature "save view" is not a solution because you only can save the top levels.
For example you are working on a map with hundreds of layers. For special maps you have to activate special layers and deactivate others. You have to do it for hundreds of layers manually. And if you forget to activate onlay one you’ll get a call from your client two weeks later asking you why the printed map has no street names. Or why all the restaurant icons are gone. It's a nightmare.
So please help me saving time and money.
