show selected objects


Recommended Posts

I have a command that makes it possible to toggle (invert) class visibility which I usually use for exactly this situation, first I use the visibility tool to hide the objects I need then I run the command to show only the objects I need. For this to work you need to have the objects in certain classes as Peter suggests.

Otherwise I am not aware of any good solution to this at the moment.

(Put the command in the Plug-Ins folder in your Vectorworks Folder, then add it to your workspace through the workspace editor.)

Best workaround: with all classes/layers editable, select what you want, group, and hide others while in groups. Then edit the group.

Terrible workaround and typical of Vectorworks fudges. Destructive editing just to view something the way you need. Grouping objects that have associations, are cross-layered, have constraints etc etc is destructive.

Hopefully this is fixed in 2013.
