hide sketches created by FS

Hi everyone,

So I am new at Featurescript and I am designing a featureScript to generate screw and nut quickly. I am expecting to use this featurel to generate Standard part library quickly.

To generate the 3D geometry of the screw and nut I have to generate sketch through featureScript. And I was wondering if there was an option or something to hide the sketches generetaed by the feature?

The feature is here :

    Just call at the end:
    opDeleteBodies(context, id + "deleteSketches", { "entities" : qCreatedBy(id + "YourSketchId") });

    Hiding the Feature would hide the sketches in it, but if you never wish to see them again: use opDeleteBodies on the sketch created in your FS.

    Edit: never mind, didn't see Ilya's comment there.
