Is there a way for the end user to be able to hide or move parts out of the way while using just E-drawings?
What version are you using? I know in the newest release you're able to do both of those, I think older versions do too.
Right click on part and select hide....
Edit: I went as far back as 2014 and hiding and/or moving are possible....
Hide: yes, not sure about "move" can be done in eDrawing
Yes. Use these tools as needed (this picture is from eDrawings 2016 version but these tools should be available in older versions also )
To hide, right click on a component and select hide.
Thanks for confirming the "move", Deepak
Turns out the assembly was saved as an e-drawings part file instead of an assembly. When done that way you can't do anything with it in e-drawings.
Do you guys use e-drawings much? Manipulating a model seems incredibly slow to me. We had to upgrade the PC's in the shop to get them to rotate at all. They are still painful at times.
