How many times have you HIDDEN a bunch of polys and then realized you want the next few visible?

Then you:


UNHIDE
RESELECT
(RE)HIDE



What is this, the 20th Century?

I request a new visiblity/hiding feature, "GROW VISIBILITY" or "GROW VISIBLE". It works like EXPAND SELECTION, but instead of expanding the selection, it expands the set of visible polys. SELECTION is retained unchanged.

And of course, I request the converse function, "CONTRACT VISIBILITY" or "SHRINK VISIBILITY".

Here's the psuedo-code:


SAVED FLAG=0
IF POLYS SELECTED:

SAVE SELECTION //(AS POINT SET)
SET SAVED FLAG=1
ENDIF:
SELECT ALL
UNHIDE ALL
EXPAND SELECTION
HIDE UNSELECTED
DESELECT ALL
IF SAVED FLAG=1:

RESELECT SAVED SELECTION SET
SWITCH TO POLYS
ENDIF:
