Turning on Visibility of Line Segments in Drawings

572 Views, 5 Replies

In drawings there are a lot of times where I turn off the visibility of certain line segments to make the view look cleaner.

What if I was to reverse the visibility of these lines segments down the road?

How is this done?

RMB on view.

Select "Show Hidden Edges"

The edges whose visibilty has been toggled off show up in red. Select them to toggle each segments visibility back on.

 

Sorry, I've never figured out how to screen cap the RMB menu.

I think this is what your after.

Then right click. All your hidden lines should show up red. Then click show all and they should be back.

Hopefully that makes sense and is what your after.

Thanks Mike that will work.  Simple over sight.

 

As far as capturing the RC menus in an image, what I do is have the snipping tool open, select "New"

then hit the "Esc" key, select back into the program screen you want to capture and then hold down the "Ctrl"

key and hit the "PrtScn" key.  Then will freeze the RC menu and bring the snipping tool back up to crop and capture the image you want.  Like I did below.
