    Same problem here. I think a couple of versions back, it would always show hidden layers in the Illustrator file. Now it works fine on the initial placement of the file. But, if I Alt-click on the Illustrator file that is already placed on my InDesign page, to edit it. After updating the illustrator file, all the layers that were hidden are now visible.

    My workaround is to open Bridge, and drag and drop the edited Illustrator file into the original container. It's basically replacing the Illustrator file with the same file. Kind of a hard update, if you will. I think the Relink option in the Links panel only looks at the file name, and not the file name and time stamp, to "see" if it is actually a new file.

    Problem Solved!!

    It seems the X-Mouse program is the issue. I closed the X-Mouse program and upgraded Illustrator to 23.0.6 and alt +scroll wheel functioned as expected. Opening X-Mouse, the issue would return. I will leave my comments below for context. Kudos to the previous commenters for actually figuring it out.

    Same as what Ashley said below. The alt + scroll wheel function changed when I updated to the latest version of Illustrator (23.0.6). Before the update, pressing and holding the alt key and moving the scroll wheel on the mouse would zoom in and out of the artboard. After the update, pressing and holding the alt key and moving the scroll wheel moves the artboard left and right. Same as holding the ctrl key and moving the scroll wheel. For those of us that committed this operation into muscle memory, it is deeply frustrating for it to have changed. Photoshop and InDesign operate as before, hold down alt and move the scroll wheel to zoom. Furthermore, installing the previous version does not remap the keys to operate as before the update. Please inform all the users, which is probably mostly professionals, how we can make things go back to the way we are used to operating Illustrator.

    Update: I downgrading to Illustrator 23.0.2 to get the alt + scroll wheel to zoom as before.
