Hide components keyboard shortcut

Is there a keyboard shortcut key that will hide components in an assembly ? I have always thought the 'Hide' and 'Show Only' should not be right next to each other in the RHMB menu as the 'Show Only' can often be accidentally clicked instead of 'Hide' and there is no undo this

There is not a keyboard shortcut by default but you can create your own if you want. When you're in an assembly go into the customize menu and select the Keyboard tab. Change the Choose command from dropdown to All commands and then you can create your own shortcut for Hide.

Hi @Father

 

 

 

what is Your goal?

 

What and when should a tab key do something.

 

Shortcuts in SE need an additional special key like CTRL, SHIFT etc. together with the nominal key

HI @Father

 

 

 

go to Customize and change the Keyboard code for Hide Design to whatever Your favorites may be.

See here as example the Alt+B command for HideDesign

So You also could use Alt+D for ShowDesign

Hi

 

 

 

 

...

 Keyboard ShortCuts are always a good way top automize Your workflow.

So for example I always have Alt+V to enter the Variable Table

 

Wether or not a Hide/Show BodyDesign will be usefull, this is to be desided by Yourself and by the individual user.

Why not just add the commands to the QAT ?
