Wrong layers of the PDF are visible. Why?

So far there have been in the PDF preview from the MAC, the problem is that here all the layers contained in the PDF will be displayed. This is apparently because the preview tool of OSX can not handle PDF layers or they do not recognize it as hidden. Once you open the PDF in Adobe Acrobat , Adobe Reader or Illustrator, the PDF is displayed correctly.

Note: As of version 18 PDF layers can be turned on and off with ArchiCAD.
