Editing Visibilities in Views Navigator
Tips & Tricks
The extensive Views Navigator offers you many useful functions. The buttons at the bottom of the navigator help you select the relevant visibilities. In addition to the ‘Create New User‑Defined Visibility’ button, there are also four other buttons for changing existing visibilities.
With the ‘Add new objects into visibility’ check box, you can decide how you want to treat new nodes, lines, members, etc. when you work in a user‑defined visibility. If the option is selected, you can define the relevant group in the list below. This allows you to work with a separate object, for example a floor, and add the newly created objects to this floor or visibility at once.
The button with a ‘+’ sign can be used to add currently selected objects to a user‑defined visibility. Make sure to select the right user‑defined visibility from the list first. Then simply select the relevant objects in the model and click the button (see the first figure from the left).
The button with a ‘-’ sign removes the selected objects from the user‑defined visibility.
The button with an‘=’ sign overwrites the previous selection of the user‑defined visibility with a new selection.
The button with the revolving arrows inverts the current display. This is useful if you have selected only one visibility or want to see which elements are not assigned to visibilities yet.
