Why is is Illustrator revealing all hidden layers when I export as PNG?


Question

enter image description here

I am trying to export print files from a large template file. Why are my layers showing up in the PNG and how can I get it to stop? Exporting to screens does not help.

In my case, it was an issue with nested layers. Even though a parent layer was set to hidden, the layers within were set to visible and would show when exporting.

I was able to fix it by hiding the inner layers instead of the outer layer.
