"Hide everywhere" freezes application ST7

Hi Guys

My file has a model and eight drawing sheets.

I go to the layers tab and right click a layer, then choose "hide everywhere"

Solidedge 2d shows as "not responding" in task manager

Solidedge shows a round rotating cursor and hangs for a few minutes after which it comes good and the layers are hidden.

Is this machine related or a solidedge thing?

Hi Pete,


Not seeing this here, show & hide as expected.......the cause could be either, or or even a combination of what you suggest. Would need more info about the circumstances under which the freeze occurs.

Are you able to share the draft file?

Re: "Hide everywhere" freezes application ST7

my guess is that it's file specfic not PC nor SE.


Try hiding each layer everywhere 1 at a time...


I suspect you will find one layer that is causing the tax on the system.


I suspect that layer may benifit from being cleaned up...  i suspect lots of very small and overlapping entities.


Just a guess...  but i think worth giving a shot.

Hi Matt

You are correct

The layers in question were imported ACAD layers. Other layers worked as expected.
