Hide Show Parts and Multiuser Mayhem

Please make all part/assembly hide and show selections local to each user (as it is for x-sections). One of the amazing features of Onshape is working together on the same parts and assemblies. But this is greatly impeded when another team member shows an enclosure, for example, and I am "working under the hood". It blocks my view entirely. It would be much better if the enclosure only displayed on that user's screen and not mine. I have a similar request for moving parts/assemblies but this may be much more difficult to implement.

    @Forlorn_Designer If the person who is showing off the design only has view access, or creates a different branch, those edits will not affect you.

    Those are just workarounds though, and I agree that this functionality would be nice.  I've pulled a ticket for you.

    In meantime you and other collaborators could use different workspaces merging into Main what you consider to be a completed change
