I have some levels in my file that I want printed to my pdf, however by default I want those levels to be off in the pdf so that the user would have to manually turn them on in the pdf in order to see them. Is this possible?
meanwhile use the create a layered pdf approach and have every thing on that you want shown in the active file
and all the other levels you want the users to turn off in a different ref file and name it "turn off" but have all the levels on and then the user in the pdf can turn off all the levels by just turning off the one ref file called " turn off "by clicking on the eye icon for the ref file..
not perfect , not what you asked for but is a workable work flow to work around the lack of feature for now...

The only other way to get around this is not use pdf but export to imodel ie model.idgn
And tell your client to get and use (FREE download) Bentley View to turn on off levels and make their own pdfs with levels on off...a selling point to convince clients is the viewer can also measure true lengths and coordiantes, print to paper and biggest seller of all ( after it being for FREE) it can view and print autocad DWG's as well as DGN's
