What I want is in Photoshop, but it can be better!
You select objects; they are highlighted.
You press/hold a key, the highlight disappears. (Your selection is still selected. You can still move things, delete things, ect.
You release the key the highlight reappears. (Well, if you haven’t done anything profound to them.)
For instance: For checking movement, I select an object/move it/undo… This is an area where Bongo would be too large a hammer for the job. All I want is to visually shut off the highlight.
At times, it should help with positioning in certain drawings. Once you are moving something, you may not need the highlight. By holding down a key, the user will likely remember that something is selected.
It may help with demo’ing, or really teaching. You mean select this, that, and the other thing, and then…
It might also come in handy for making sure your have grabbed everything you think you need before you do an invert-hide (as working on large projects, I find myself switching layers and hiding objects to both conceptually see what I am doing to have the framerate I need to work. At this scale, even when Rhino marks a list of objects internally to hide, it take time.]
Thanks for the interest : )
