Tips and tricks: Hidden neighbor parts on drawings

Sometimes you need a dimension to provide a mark, such as the profile size, for another object or assembly near the drawing you are working on. By using hidden neighbor parts, you can turn on these objects for adding marks and dimensions, or just for checking purposes, without them showing up on the final printed drawing.
