Select n Isolate

This plugin will allow you to isolate selected items by hiding the remaining visible entities in the scene.  These items can be any selectable entity in your model: faces, edges, groups, components, dimensions, etc.

 

TIP: The plugin keeps track of which entities you hide through the plugin and it will only reveal these entities.  This will allow you to use SketchUp's native HIDE feature to hide entities you want to keep hidden.

 

To Isolate:

  1. Select the item/s that you want to isolate.
  2. Right Click/Context click on the selection and select the "Isolate/Reveal" option in the context menu

 

To Reveal:

  • Right Click/Context click on anything in your model and select the "Isolate/Reveal" option in the context menu

 

NOTE: Don't use this plugin while in Edit Component/Group mode.  It will hide everything... even the items you want to isolate.   A possible fix in v2 :-)

NOTE: Big kudos to TIG. This plugin was inspired by his old Isolate Selection script (2005) that works on Windows but not on the Mac.
