How to display only the axes of visible holes in a view ?

Hi all,

 

All is in the title : when I use "show annotations" in my drawing, all axes come to screen, even those of the holes that are invisible in the selected view (side or bottom holes). I end up having to select one by one all the feature for which I want to show the axes.

 

Does anybody has a quicker metod ?

 

Thank you !

 

Eric

Eric,

I think you can use displaying Axes by selecting hole features e.g.

> Show Model Annotations

> Select first Hole feature + CTRL + Second hole feature in view, It will give you axes to display only for selected hole features.

In the bottom of the show model annotations dialog box, there are a couple of icons for checking all  or unchecking all. If you need to show all of the axes except for a few, I usually check all then select the ones I don't want. If you need to show just a few, I usually unselect them all and then select the ones I need.

There is nothing that will show "just visible" hole axes.

As Mahesh says, you can also select by feature or by component (for assemblies).

Thank you both for your contribution.

I already knew these possibilities but this does not save a lot of "clicks". I am working on parts that have like 30 visible holes on each view and about 60 more on other faces. So either possibility require at least 30 individual selections ...

I thought there would be some kind of config option that sould be set to "show datums only for visible features" ?

Unfortunately no other option to display datum for only visible features in view.
