Hide cells and blocks shortcut
This issue was created automatically from an original Mantis Issue. Further discussion may take place here.
Here is a request from a user. What I envision is an additional button like the "Interactive Select Cells On". Something like "Interactive Hide Cells On" and Interactive Hide Blocks On". OK, verbiage from my user:
This is a feature or enhancement request for helping to speed up post-processing of a typical system-level analysis that we do. It can take a long time to "drill down" to visualize the element (cell) block that we are interested in. For example, we may have a large system model with hundreds of blocks, but all we really care about is a spring or screw that's buried inside some wall and hidden from view by cement, epoxies, plywood or other parts. It would be nice to have a single 'hot-key' to hide a series of blocks by picking. Yes, there are other ways of doing this (load only the blocks of interest, cutting planes, etc.), but sometimes this isn't known a-priori and it'd be nice to be able to click-navigate through a model more easily.
Anyways, I envision something like:
*User presses "H" key to toggle 'block hiding mode', cursor turns into a 'target' *User clicks on a block, that block is hidden. *User clicks on another block, that block is hidden. *User clicks on another block, that block is hidden. *User presses "H" key to toggle 'block hiding mode' off, cursor returns to normal.
