Hiding bodies in a drawing view.

I ran into a call today that I haven’t seen in a while.  So, I’d thought I’d share…

Most people know how to hide a body in a multi-bodied part to focus or work on certain aspects of their design.  But, what about a drawing?  How do you hide a body in a drawing view?  The answer is quite simple:  Right-click on the drawing view and select properties.  A dialog box will open up like you see below.  Select the “Hide/Show Bodies” tab and select what bodies you want to hide out of the view.  Select “Apply” and “OK” to accept the changes.  And you’re done.  This same process can be used to hide components in an assembly.
