    Do you mean hiding a part in an assembly in a drawing? Because right now you can't. And without saved view states or configurations in assemblies yet. Your only option is to copy your assembly and suppress the parts. Then insert that view ito drawings.

    Sorry

    @baumar - there is a tech article that describes how to do this . . .

    And of course, a much simpler workflow is in the oven! ;)

    ...really don't like the lack of tools in this forum software. Found no way to delete this post...and it seems I must post it...or my 25 - 30 years of using software I missed something really obvious.

    Did you post, then edit?

    Because you're right, once it's posted it's stuck.

    Othrewise you can delete a draft as long as you don't post

    Thanks and can't doubt your assertion John but could not find a way to delete my draft. Not the sharpest tool in the shed but expect I should be able to find simple tools - if they exist.

    Well it's kinda hidden..

    This will only show up IF you have a draft to delete..

    philip_thomas nicely done.

    Your method seems to have plenty of control to achieve the desired results.

    @billy2 - Thank you - and of course we absolutely will be adding hide/show directly from the drawing.
