Hide/show actions in the history?

edward_panedward_pan Member Posts: 8
I did some search and it seems no one has asked about this.

Sometimes after I make an adjustment, I would view the difference by undoing and redoing.
It happens that a part or a sketch might be get in the way or needed so I would hide or show it and by doing so the undo/redo history would be interrupted because those are included in the history.

Would it be possible to exclude those from the history, or is there a good reason for them to be included?

    If you need to hide something temporarily, I recommend hovering over it and pressing Shift T to make it temporarily transparent. This works for parts, surfaces, and curves, but not for sketches.

    Undo for show/hide can be great if you accidentally show or hide all or otherwise show/hide something you didn't mean to.

    If you want to do a more visual comparison, you can use the compare tool from the history menu:
