Is there are reason why I can't select multiple objects and hide them?

Ì select multiple objects to hide them but the option is not available in the screen properties pane. I can however set their transparancies and other common attributes. I would have expected that setting the visibility is also common amongst objects.

You are totally right, there should be one. Meanwhile you can use the keyboard shortcuts to do so. Select all the components you want to mark as hidden and press CTRL+H (or Cmd + H).

For future Mac users who find this answer: As far as I can tell, there is no keyboard shortcut for "Hide," even though the documentation says that it is Command-J (⌘ + J), which does nothing at all.


Moreover, Command-H (⌘ + H) hides the entire Justinmind application (it is a Mac OS X built-in keyboard shortcut).
