Hide doesn't actually hide... makes it crosshatched

When I try to temporarily hide a thing, it’s still visible, just transparent and cross hatched.

I was expecting it to simply disappear, like it does if I assign it to a layer and then hide the layer. Training videos show the hidden part disappearing… is there a setting I’m missing?
Thanks

Go to the View menu and Untick Hidden geometry. This is how you can find hidden things,

That worked perfectly. I knew I had to be missing something simple! Thank you!

Provided that all Layers are set to visible, of course

Imagine how annoying it would be if everything hidden on a hidden layer appeared every time you turned on hidden geometry just to work with current hidden geometry. I think I’ve written the word hidden so much the text is hiding.

I was going to say: provided that you have SketchUp running but then I thought: why the heck hack this thread?
