AFAIK there is no equivilant function to that You mentioned for SW.
But give the "Toggle Disply" function a try.
This IMHO is the nearest function to what You request.
I normally have this as a Keyboard Shortcut (Alt-T) in use
I am not sure if there is a better way to do this, but you can create a query that searches for all hidden components whose author is not "-" (arbitrarily picked since you must use some property and this should return all hidden components). If you double click the query it will run and select all hidden compoenents in the assembly. You can then right-click in space and choose Isolate to enter the Isolate view of just those hidden components. You can then Restore whenever you are finished to go back to the original view. If you choose Dismiss option, then the current view will remain.
ahh, this is a really good feature. But if it isolated too that would be better that way i can easily find the hidden parts in large assys
thanks got it working now.
I've only been using SE for 6 days and i'm trying to get it to match as much as SW as i can
