Click an object to hide the visibility of the whole class?


Is there anyway to click an object and hide the whole class of that object? Or change the behavior of visibility tool to hide the object instead of graying it out?


I came across the following thread from 2009 with the same subject but I can't find "Class Invisible" feature in the context click.


Im using VW 2019

As long as you’re not using 2019 Fundamentals, the Visibility tool on the Basic tool palette will do what you’re asking: There are several modes to control Visible / Invisible / Grey for either Classes or Layers.

A cool trick with that tool is to set the mode to visible then hold the ‘v’ key down. All the invisible classes will temporarily become visible and any objects you click on their class will stay visible when you release the v key.
