What is quickest way of viewing work with hatches off then on?

What is the quickest way of having ortho views with hatches off then hatches on ?

when on they obliterate background I am tracing, but are needed to see the end result on already closed shapes.

Some keyboard toggle or other means of toggling them on and off, or a view option to hide them would be good.


Hi @Steve1,

make some macros to hide and show hatches. You can run macros from a keyboard shortcut, alias or put them into buttons. Below are the button command macros, left mouse would hide and right mouse would show hatches:


Hi Steve - another way is to have the Display panel open (Panels menu > Display) and check/un-check ‘Annotations’ in there to toggle hatches.
