Hiding features and components helps you focus on the parts you’re working on, but it hasn’t always been easy to see what was hidden. A simple change in Creo 4.0 shows you at a glance what’s hidden and what’s visible.

The name of the hidden object is now shown in gray.
Repeat the steps to make the object visible again.

The object will disappear, and its name will be shown in gray in the model tree. Follow the steps in the model tree to make it visible again.
