Make selection of Parts directly Invisibile in stead of first visible

Is there a way to make parts invisible directly independent to the selection you made (selection can contain visible, invisible or both parts)?


Most of the time, i make a selection in the model browser and want to put a list of parts directly invisible. Sometimes i also select already invisble parts.

Now what inventor wants to do is make them all first visible before i can make them invisible. As far as i know, there is no other option to do this.


Is there maybe a combination with holding shift or something to directly toggle them invisible?

I think there's no combination for that.


Use "Ctrl" Key and select only the parts you want to turn invisible.


Also you can post your idea in the link below to request a change in that behavior.
