Is there any way to hide selection handles?

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if there's something that's the equivalent of the "h" key in illustrator, so that you can see what you're working on without seeing the selection indicators, but without deselecting.

Thank You! That's half the battle.

 

It would be great to have something that worked for the text tool, as well, as letter-spacing etc. is one of the things I prefer to judge without highlighting showing,

We might do something special for text when you type as you don't need to see the handles when not using the mouse.

 

I will try and get it included soon.

Hey, thanks for getting back to this thread, Tony. It would be great if there was a way to toggle on and off, not just the handles, but any text highlighting--it can be distracting when you're trying to adjust size, spacing, kerning, etc.

 

cheers,

jt

That spacebar solution is great!  It allows you to add effects and see what is happening without having to view the edges.   :)

 

Is this a new feature with Beta 2?

 

Where has that been hiding? I just checked the help file and didn't see it under keyboard shortcuts....

Great feature and an easy to remember shortcut, I should have looked on the forums ages ago for this!

 

Perhaps it could be added to the "tips" bar on the bottom of the screen.  Thats where I looked to see if it might be possible, then in the view menu, then finally here in the forums.
