Is there a way to show/hide a component, sketch, etc. and have it be shown/hidden in every display state rather than just the active one?
RMB on your component & select properties.
In the middle of the properties box you'll see an area labelled "Display State specific properties".
At the bottom of this section there's a drop-down box with the options:-
Change displauy properties in: This display state / All display states / Specify display states
If you select "Specify", you get a new popup listing available display states to select from.
Okay, I just tried that and it doesn't seem to have any effect. Any idea what's going on?
EDIT: This also doesn't seem to be possible for sketches. Do those not support being hidden across display states?
Try toggling "View / Sketches".
That's only for hiding/showing all sketches. Is it possible to do something like this but for individual sketches?
To show/hide a component in all display states use the Edit menu and select hide/show > all display states.
I don't think you have this control over sketches, it is an all or nothing for each sketch. If you select show I think it is shown in all display states.
edit: the RMB option for components have kinda been broken for a while, this is the only reliable way I have found. There is also some dependance on whether you have display states linked or not
I am hoping that someone will have an answer to this one.
Are you concerned with Assembly Display States and hiding / showing parts and sketches in the child part files?
I see this discussion is in the Assembly category.
Could you explain further?
No, these are assembly level sketches. e.g. the positioning sketch for a hole series, which doesn't hide by default
In my case, I am concerned about both assemblies and parts. For example, if I add a new feature to a part, it's sketch will be shown in every other display state, beside the one that I created it in. If I add a surface body, I get the same result. Assemblies are pretty much the same way.
I was afraid of that.
I am using SW2014 SP5.
Has this been addressed for Sketches and Surfaces in parts? I have a skeleton part with numerous sketches and display states. If I add a new sketch, I have to manually cycle through every display state and toggle its visibility off. EXTREMELY tedious and inefficient.
