I've always wondered why there isn't a quick link to this function in the view ribbon.
Instead, one has to select a view, open properties, click "hidden edge style" radio button, apply or ok.
I don't care much that "show edges hidden by other parts" follows the above selection by default. I would just like a toggle: if they're on turn them off and vice versa.
I have written a macor, a couple of years ago, which made this job easier.
It allows to change the view styles in one or more views with a single click.
The onyl issue at the moment is, that now it is German only.
But give me a short time, and I will provide an English version too!
Danka shein. Nice, I figured out the German and it's nice that you can pick multiple views and it has the 3 main options.
However, now I'm going to whine a little.
- It doesn't maintain the last selections and defaults to off.
- I still think a simple toggle for the first two settings would be nice since for me they are the most used and it reduces clicks considerably.
as attachment You will find an English Version of my ShowHide macro for SE drafts.
How does it work?
Start the macro, select all the views within a draft You'll like to change the view styles.
Then chose the settings for hidden edges, hidden by part edges (for ASM drafts) and tangent edges.
Push the Apply button and done!
Hope it helps
Being a bit pedantic here, but could we have an option not to update the views automatically ?
"an option not to update the views automatically"
Not following that. I've never had views update automatically. They get the continuous thin lines around them indicating they need to be updated but you have to command it.
