mapkey for hide/unhide in WF5

Hello,


I apologize if this is beating a dead horse or an easy question, (I did do a search).


We would like a simple "h" mapkey to hide and unhide the selected model/assembly, either in the model tree or graphics area.


I appreciate any insight.


Thanks,


David T. Francis

I think I remember we tried it....but found the middle mouse function to be an issue. I cannot remember if we ver got it to work correctly.

Maybe I am missing something here. You have to select the component from the model tree or model first. At that point one can do a right mouse click, hide. That is two mouse clicks vs a one key stroke mapkey. Not much difference but it is there...

All....I meant RMB not middle.

In the attached config.pro file there are 3 mapkeys that I find usefull for hiding and unhiding parts / sub-assmblies while working in upper level assemblies. You can append this to your local config.pro file in your startup directory


hc --- Hide the selected component


spo--- Select parent object usefull for selecting the sub-assembly level of the current selected component.


ua--- Unhide all


Also you can use Ctrl+z to undo the last hide & Ctrl+Y to redo the last hide.
