Hide part of model

Hello all,
I am new to Caesar II. I have a lot of experience with RISA, I know these two programs are not alike in any way but I was hoping Caesar has some features similar to RISA.

In RISA you can select any portion of nodes, members, plates etc. and hide everything else so that you only see/interact with the nodes shown on the screen.

Another feature is that each node if selected correctly will list it's position in XYZ relative to the origin.

Is there anything like these features in Caesar? I have searched but can not find anything similar.


RE: Hide part of model

If you're using line numbers, you can set the visibility to zero (for the lines you don't want to see).

For the XYZ coordinates, you can:
a) view the coordinate list, or
b) use the 'distance' operator to find the distance from a specific node to the origin or to any other node.
