Greetings all great and knowing SolidWorks community.
I'd like to place the isolate icon on the assembly tab of my command manager
but I'm unable to find one. Am I missing something?
Pete I believe there is no icon for this option.
So you have 3 options to use it:
1 Right click on part(s) and select ISOLATE from the list
2 Pick it from View > Display
3 Create a macro and place an icon for that on the toolbar or a keyboard shortcut.
I prefer option 1(b) from your list:
CTRL-click the items you want to isolate, then right click to bring up the menu, the tap the 'I' key. This chooses the 'isolate' option from the menu.
Notes: I like this option because typing the letter 'I' is much faster than finding the option in the huge list and clicking on it. I also like that it is available 'out of the box' and is not a 'custom' keyboard setup.
Although not required, it's helpful to have the windows option "underline access keys when available" enabled.
I guess I was just looking for confirmation that there is no icon for this.
Kind of surprising since I would imagine this is a popular function.
But you can set a hotkey to it - I have set "I" as a rather fitting key. :-)
