Re: Toggle visibility INSIDE grouped items
As reported during version 5 development, I didn't allow this feature to avoid a too complicated management of the size and elevation of a partially visible group.
But maybe, we could find a reasonable way to make it happen. After all, when you hide some parts of a piece of furniture with the invisible material setting added in the coming version 5.2, its size visually changes too, but not its bounding box in the plan and its size elsewhere in the program. Maybe we could similarly consider that the size of a group could include all the visible and invisible items it contains and resizing of a group would change also proportionally its invisible items. Just wonder how users could guess that a group contains some invisible items when they view such a group in the plan with a larger bounding box most of the time...
