  1. Open a drawing.
  2. Check that the ghost outline option is selected in File menu > Settings > Ghost outline .

    Hidden objects are shown as ghost outlines in color drawings. In grayscale and black and white drawings, hidden objects are not shown even if Ghost outline is selected.

    • Hide from view : Tekla Structures hides the selected object in the view where the selected objects are located.
