Isolate Object command

Recommended Posts

Boh is correct.  You need to add it with the Workspace Editor.  Either of the top 2 commands will give you access to the workspace editor.

@Sam Jones I am in the Workspace Editor, but have no clue what to do there..... (I do not understand your second printscreen with Tape Preferences at all).

Expand “All menus” On the left hand side of the workspace editor window then see if there is a “Miscellaneous” category as that is where the plugin editor filed it.

 

Hopefully the new command will be in there. (If not restart Vectorworks and then look again), Expand your workspace on the right side of the workspace editor and drag the Hide command ftom the left side of the workspace editor to the menu in the right side of the editor where you want the command to be available from. Probably in the object context menu (Bottom of list) so it is available when you right click on an object.

 

Let is know if you’re still having probs. Cheers.

So in my workspace I can use the new tool 'Hide Selected'.

I would like to a make 3D view of object A only (not a section cut of a side view by using the clip cube) to place unto the sheet layer.

But ones I make a view port the hidden objects in front reappear...

 

Does anyone have a idea if this is possible or how to work around this, please?

The Scripts won’t affect VP visibilities. Can you put B and C on a different class or layer and adjust the VP visibilities to turn them off?
 

It does seem like a good situation to use section from clip cube.

Yes you are right, it does work with the use of Clip Cube indeed.... thanks.

Just as a single item in the view plane? Yes with me it does.

 

Or do you mean all copies of the symbol visible in the view?

Its more like when I am editing inside a single hybrid symbol. It works when you are editing a normal symbol but doesnt when it is a hybrid symbol.
