Suppression of Assembly model cross-section


New member
Is it possible to suppress the model/assembly cross-sections alone?

They are usually suppressed when their reference features are suppressed.

Can they be suppressed without suppressing their reference features (usually datum planes)?

In the Global Reference Viewer, you can only see them with Cosmetic ids.

We're using Pro/ENGINEER 2001.

You can resume them by their internal ids but it seems you cannot suppress them alone since they are not features.

Someone in our site inadvertently suppressed the cross-sections w/o suppressing the references. I wanted to trace how so it can be avoided.
