The process of going to Outliner Window to find compnents to hide can be more rapidaly and intective.
The erase tool can be used to delete (short cut “E”), soften (short cut “Ctrl+E”) and hide (short cut “Shift+E”). It would be nice if Sketchup has another short cut for “hide all same components”, and I sugest the short cut “Alt+E” or “Ctrl+Shift+E”.
It would helpfull in some situations like when working with roof timbers, for example, when you need to deel with a lot of similar and different components at the same layer or group, “roof timbers”.
What do you think guys?
