Display an entity after turning off?

How to display objects that have visibility 'off'? I can't select them to change the property because I can't see 'em!
Thanks...

You can use Lisp to select and highlight invisible objects:

Code: Select all

(sssetfirst nil (ssget "_X" '((60 . 1))))

Thanks! that works. It's so odd that they would give you a way to hide entities but no way on the menu or a command to bring them back. Using code like you wrote would not be obvious to most users. I wonder if this is a good case for a bug report or wish list item.
Thanks again,

Hi Hamm,
Yep, why don't think that it's a bonus (new feature) of IntelliCAD?!
