Anyone else notice the Make Visible function on the "right click" context menu of search sets is gone in NW2013.
Make Visible is not the same as unhide. Make visible would unhide geometry even if the parent model/folder is hidded. This was very helpful for isolating particular elements. Great for only turning on the items you wanted to clash.
Any thoughts on why it is gone? Or where it went? Can it be returned?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Despite normalising the name when we added the ability to hide sets from the context menu as well, the intent was that because it's on the context menu of a set, it should do exactly as Make Visible did, and show the set - i.e. the user is explicitly signalling intent to unhide/show/make visible/reveal that set.
That it does not change the state of grouping items above it and thus make sure the set is actually revealed was not part of the intent. I've raised an issue for this.
(Perhaps Show might be a better name in future, plus it's actually a word)
Any new updates on this issue??
i am running into thetame problem. I used the "make visable" in the timelines when trying to show the sequence of structural steel, with the overall file hiddenjoists "make visable" each set of joists in sequence. When trying to "unhindered" theindividual sets, it will not show up since the overall steel file is set to hidden.
I need this fixed or a workaround!!!!!
My work around was to go back to using Navisworks 2011.
I'm really frustrated also. I needed to develop some simple phasing planning exhibits and was unable to do them using 2013.
trust me, already tried going back to an earlier verison but we no longer have any of the older verisons installed on our network.
I hope this gets fixed or something added in that achieves the same goals, because this is quite frustrating I agree. I also was doing a 4-d schedule for a presentation over the weekend and it made it about 10000x harder than it needed to be, simply because that one, small option was overlooked.
