Oh, this works great - very cool!

On more semi related question. As I zoom in on the map and a layer
becomes "IN SCALE" it shows on the legend but it is always selected OFF!
How do I get it to default to ON, it is set to STATUS ON in the map
file, and I tried to set it to STATUS DEFAULT but it is not selected ON
when you zoom into scale. 

You have to select if on and refresh the map which is a pain if you have
a lot of layers that do this.
