Overview of MrHide

  • Sketchup version: SU2017 and above
  • Platform: Windows and Mac OSX
  • LibFredo6: v11.3 or above
  • Usage: Free

MrHide is a toolbar allowing a direct access to some functions of Sketchup which have no dedicated icon or are more cumbersome to access.

In the first version, the functions are related to showing / hiding visual elements in SketchUp, most of them being style and scene parameters

  • Hidden geometry, Hidden objects, Back Edges
  • axes, component axes, dimensions, guides, text labels
  • shadow, sun shading, fog
  • ground, sky
  • Edge visibility, Edge profiles, Edge endpoints, Edge color by Material, Edge color by Axis
  • Edit Component: show other instances and show rest of the model
  • Colors by tag/layer

In addition to the toolbar, there is a Quick Launcher which can be pinned / unpinned. It also allows to select which icons are visible in the toolbar.

The original idea comes from JClements, who also designed all the icons. Many thanks to him.
