Hi! If the drawing view has "Associative to Design View" option turned on, the component visibility will always be controlled by the Design View (it cannot be turned on/off in the Drawing browser). If the option is turned off, the component visibility can be controlled in the Drawing browser.

Thanks!

Thanks for the help. i am talking about surpressing an entire compont patteren without having to open all of the elements in it to surpress it from the browser. my IDW view is set to master that i can do this when i need to. I think it is crazy to open 100-200 elements to be able to turn the visibility off to hide them in an IDW view.

I still think the best way to hide a pattern is to create a different View Representation in the assembly, like i wrote in post 9. Especially when you change the pattern number, in the assembly environment it's a lot easier to handle the visability.
