This topic shows how to hide and show layers and parameters in order to adjust the Device Tree.

Hide devices

As best practice we recommend to display only those devices or layers that are used in the show. This allows faster navigating through the device tree when a lot of devices are loaded in the project. Choose the “Toggle Device” entry from the site context menu to hide or show individual items or all items at once.

Using multi-selection to show/hide several devices could be time-saving.

To select several devices, select the first one and use holding down the CTRL or the SHIFT key while clicking on other devices to select them too.
Right-click on one of these layers and choose Hide from the context menu.

Show devices

Once the devices are hidden, right-click on the site and choose Toggle Devices -Show All or -Show to display all or parts of them again.
