Hide/show group of parts

Is there a way to select a group of parts in model space and hide the rest
of the assembly. I am using 2004

No you can only select parts then hide those. If you want to hide other parts then you will have to pick those. You can do it either in the Graphics area of in the FM.

Just a thought here. A macro should be able to traverse the FM tree and reverse the selections. Then you could tell it to hide, suppress, etc.

As an exercise for the student, make this macro a noshow. Hint: look for the hidebodies method. Must preselect items to show or hide.

How about using a folder to put parts to display? Then just right click the folder to suppress or unsuppress all parts in that folder. Incontext parts would be screwed up though!
