Suppressing Subordinate Objects

Suppress subordinate (or child) objects when you want to hide, or conceal any objects that are situated below a certain level, in a particular branch of a hierarchical structure.

If you are working with multiple view windows, this feature affects all view windows, in either overview and default mode.

To suppress subordinate objects, proceed as follows.

  1. Click on the object whose child objects you want to conceal.
  2. Click on the menu options Object ® Suppress Subordinate Objects.

The system hides the selected branch of the structure.
