Visibility Shortcut

Is there a way to add a keyboard shortcut or marking menu shortcut for visibility? It would be really convenient to be able to shift-click several objects and toggle the visibility of them. I have a mouse with numerous buttons that are mapped to commonly used IV features, but I cannot find a way to map a visibility toggle. FYI, I'm using IV Pro 2012 SP1 x64.

I don't know of a direct way to do this, but you can select your parts and then right-click and press V on your keyboard.  It's quite fast to do it this way.

Hmm. I know it sounds incredibly lazy, but I was hoping to avoid the right click.

So who do we talk to in order to get this functionality added? Surely I'm not the only one who thinks that it would be helpful...

How do you avoid the right click if it is a marking menu shortcut?

A marking menu gesture is only a single button press, which is my goal.

It may be possible to write a macro that will toggle the visibility of all selected components, and then bind that macro to a keyboard shortcut.  I'm no VB programmer, but this approach might get you what you seek.
