i want this feature inside Inventor

make parts invisible in the graphics area and make the invisible parts visible in graphics area. It´s hard to find invisible parts in browser. This feature should function during other tools are active so you can do this anytime.

For better understanding you can look at the video.

Alias/MDT/Catia/ThinkDesign has this functionality!!

Actually, if you go the the view representations, and view, then click on master, you get everything turned on.  However you loose your color overrides in master, that you created in default.  But your hidden item turns on!

I don´t want to view all again. I want do decide which parts are visible again.

Or you could save a design view when you turn off the parts... That is what you are talking about.

No i don´t want go back to the previous view. so this would be the answer with design views.

I want to be able select some parts make them invisible. And then make only 2 of 5 invisble parts visible. And thats what i want to do in the graphic screen not in  the browser tree! This should function like a negative view with the invisible parts to select.
