Hi all


I have a couple of patterns that I would like to hide on a particular drawing view.  I know how to accomplish this through creating a new configuration with suppression, but I really don't want to do that, as I already plan on having many configurations and it would complicate things too much.


I had the bright idea of using a display state and hiding the patterns, it works fine till the pattern changes - then I have random bodies all over the show.  I sort of understand why - SW doesn't hide the pattern parametrically (which in my view should be the behaviour of hiding a pattern) its like a one off thing.


Just typing this I guess I could try Isolate, and saving as a display state..   That doesn't work either, in fact it's even worse in that it doesn't work properly in the first place.


Im on SW15 SP4 - I guess the Isolate problem is a bug and the hide pattern is just a limitation.  Any other suggestion please?
