No Pick in v5

No Pick in v5

No Pick in v5

Instead of using layers to manage geometry in v5 I use Open Bodies. However, with a large model using show/noshow becomes a problem with this method as all bodies are always visible in either show or noshow. In v4 I could use the layer filters to remove geometry I was not interested in. I know this is sort of available in V5 but layer management seems unpredictable and quite tricky to use. It would be good if there were 2 levels for show/noshow. One controlling Open or Part Bodies and one controlling elements within a Part or Open Body so that Bodies switched off from Part1 would not be visible in either show or noshow when working on an active Open Body. Also when selecting by colour for example (*col in v4) I want to be able to use NoPick (from v4) to protect certain Open Bodies from the selection.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
