Show/alter state

The Show/Alter State commands allow you to efficiently review and modify various model properties. For each of the commands, entities are color coded in accordance with a legend, and the entity color changes to reflect any changes as they are made.

In the Properties window, you can use filters for most Show/Alter State commands. The filters allow you to control both the visibility of entities by their current setting and their adjustability by their type and characteristic. Inactive but visible entities are shaded a light transparent grey whose opacity you can also control, if necessary.

To access the Show/Alter State commands, do the following:

  1. Open a Review view.
  2. On the Review toolbar, click Show/Alter State.
  3. Go to the Properties window.
