Control hide and show body when comparing revisions

guy_rogelguy_rogel Member, User Group Leader Posts: 68 PRO
I want to compare 2 versions of the same part studio to check what parts have changed.
But i can not find the way to hide and show a specific body at both of the versions.
this makes comparing very hard
Am I missing anything ?

    Thanks Lana
    But can you do it for both V2 and V1 . I was only able to hide and show bodies in V2 but could not do the same on V1.
    Is it possible ?

    I would like to suggest that https://cad.onshape.com/help/Content/compare.htm be updated to include a hint that part visibility functionality can be controlled in the context menu. It did not occur to me to look for the context menu, as I was trying to find the Part List like in a Part Studio.

    I would trade the feature change list for a list of bodies to hide and show at this point.

    Keep in mind you can always manually compare versions by opening up two windows with one version in each window. You'll be doing the feature/body comparison by eye or whatever tools or analysis helps you, but it's super helpful some times.
