Manage scene content information
Different entity types have different levels of information associated with them. You can select how much of this information is displayed in each of the different scene views and view regimes. Scene content selections are saved independently with each scene view.
For example, in a Solver View regime, it is generally sufficient to represent beams by their insertion lines. However, in a Structural View regime, you are likely to also include their geometric outlines. In either of the views, you may also choose to display their direction arrows and possibly their reference texts also.

The Scene Content tab is docked on the edge of the main window.
|The Scene Content has been closed||
Select items in the Scene Content window
|View the sub categories of an entity category||
|View a category in the model view||
|Hide a category in the model view||
If you hide an entity category, you can no longer perform some commands that affect that entity category.
For example, if you hide slab items, you cannot define slab or area loads on a floor because there are no slab panels to select.
