    @jaschaaa they mentioned that it was intentionally not added; because to turn on everything that shift+p hides would give you a giant mess of construction geometry, most of which would be in the way. It wouldn't be that usefull.

    It would be better to shift+p  to hide all, then toggle on what you want to see.
    so:
    shift+p, p will hide all then show all planes
    shift+p, j will hide all then show all mates

    etc.

    typically you won't want all of your mates, mate connectors, planes etc shown each time you want to toggle  some construction visibility in a certain area. You would instead just use the visibility button by the feature.
    Turning everything on can be very slow on some machines too.

    All great additions!  - They go a long way to further improving the "slick-ness" Onshape. Updating named positions has come at the perfect time for one of my projects.   One suggestion: in drawing views we can choose "Explode/Position" and "Display State" but not "Named position" yet. 
    (I have an IR on this.)

    Aligned broken views are great.  A couple more IRs (I'll do formally): projecting a new orthogonal view from an existing broken view doesn't auto-add the same break for the new view.  Also, no shading on broken views yet. (I'm sure that will come)

    -The "Cad.new "is very cool!  Displaying multiple curves in composite parts also excellent! (I got into a world of pain modelling chicken-wire some time back! )

    Thank you Onshape Team!!

    @AlexPitt
    let me know when you make those broken view IRs, I'll add my vote

    Oh, y'all didn't mention inline Document renaming :)

    Noticed it when I went to click on a book mark.
    after that I read the change log and saw it there.

    Very nice update. 

    By the way, has anyone heard from Owen sparks? Haven't seen a post from him in a while. Hope he is well.

    @NeilCooke It is your fault... Too much information in this update  :D

    I know – I was debating whether to break that out into a separate line item as well as the 2 dimension palette improvements.

    It's just a joke... Great job and an awesome update

    I love to see the Drawings in Onshape are going better and better each 3 weeks

    Clearly, lol...

    My mind must have been in lala land while thinking of how I can take advantage of cad.new

    Ok, shift+p works quite OK, but is there a shortcut to restore the origins visibility? I use P for the planes.

    Until there is a restore option, I now press Ctrl Z immediately after Shift P. That brings back the previous screen display.

    Just been wondering that myself. Owen helped me out with a few things early on.

    @AlexPitt I'll definitely +1 for the  view break alignment.   We now have aligned views but having the ability to align breaks is icing on the cake.

    This is fantastic. Thank you!

    (5-26-2020)
    We have been using Shift + P in our every day work flow for weeks now.

    To toggle construction geometry, try using Alt-F4.

    Shift+P is a great timesaver: However, you often want to restore the origin for many reasons: Would it make sense to have O or Shift O as remove & restore for the Origin?
