Objects on layers that are off become visible in either of the hideswap states. This seems like wrong behavior to me. In my little world, I’d like to be able to hideswap, turn on a layer and NOT see the objects that were previously not visible, since they were never ‘hidden’ with the hide command in the first place. They were not visible due to being on a layer that was ‘off’.
The current behavior makes it difficult to segregate and differentiate and find things sometimes.
I’ve always assumed that hiding an object adds a ‘hidden’ attribute of some sort, and puts it in the ‘hidden’ world, and will never be visible again until ‘unhidden’. This is what makes sense to me.
Fun little twist you can try at home that is a real pisser with complex projects:
-turn off a layer with an object on it that is ‘visible’ (ie: not hidden with the hide command)
-turn on the layer in step 1 above. That object is now visible.
-hideswap again and now that object has been hidden, even though the layer is ‘on’.
Am I out to lunch with this thinking?
This has been on my backburner for a while, but just now getting a chance to address it here.
I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy lately!
