Summary0002410: Set Visibility/Invisibility of object that requires manual intervention (not simply Space bar)
DescriptionWhen working with constructions objects, or dimension objects, there are times when it is desireable to mark them as Hidden (or Invisible). The Visibility parameter in the View tab (value equals True/False) allows this. The limitation is that when a Group or compound object has it's Visibility toggled (using the space bar) then the lower level objects can become visible.

This request is to make a level of Visibility available through the View tab that is not effected by the space bar. Instead it would require the user to actually toggle that Visibility manually. The effect would be similar to the code:
FreeCADGui.ActiveDocument.getObject(ShapeNameObj.Name).Visibility = False
FreeCADGui.ActiveDocument.getObject(ShapeNameObj.Name).Visibility = True

This would allow objects such as construction or dimensional to remain Hidden (or Invisible) until the user manually switches them to Visible. In the mean time the user can toggle the Visibility of a compound object, a Group or the complete Object Collection in the workspace using the space bar. And not have the undesired objects be made Visible.
