Object Selection and Creation Tools for 2011 - Object Visibility

Object Selection and Creation Tools


Object Visibility

Now you can control object visibility independent from layer visibility! The Isolate Object tool (found on the right click menu) displays just the objects selected (everything else is hidden). This makes it easier to work within complicated drawings.

You can use the Hide Objects tool (also found in the right click menu) to hide the objects selected.

Quickly restore the hidden objects with the End Object Isolation tool.

NOTE: Use the OBJECTISOLATION-MODE (yikes!) system variable to control whether object isolation persists between drawing sessions. The light bulb icon in the lower right corner of the status bar indicates whether object isolation is active in the drawing.

TIP: These tools can be VERY valuable when working in 3D!

Yes, it makes editing drawings a lot easier.
