Wondering if there exists a plug-in for this functionality:
Sometimes when editing a group or component that is nested within several other groups or components, simply hiding or showing the rest of the model (as Sketchup allows) is not sufficient. It would be good to have a way (perhaps a hotkey) that would show the current component plus the component that the current is nested in. Or the current plus two, or plus three. You could increase or decrease the level of visibility with up and down hotkeys while editing.
As a concrete example, consider editing a handrail group that is nested within and guardrail component that is nested within a stair component nested within a deck component. If I’m editing the handrail, I might want to see the whole guardrail at times but not the whole model. This feature would allow that.
Is such a thing possible? Has it already been done?
