Showing & Hiding Objects
To show/hide objects:
Click View > Show/Hide Objects.
Change the settings as desired and click OK.
When working with large landscape designs, sometimes
selecting the objects you want to modify can be cumbersome. One solution is to
hide objects that you don’t currently need to work with. For example, suppose
you want to make changes to your fill regions, but the plants keep getting in
the way. You can hide all of the plants, make changes to the fill regions, and
then show the plants again.
You can also lock objects to prevent them from being
selected. This is useful when you have added objects that you don’t want to
accidentally modify. For example, suppose you have finished your fill regions
and want to focus on adding plants. You could lock all Regions objects,
which would prevent them from being selected accidentally.
You can hide and/or lock all objects by category by
clicking the Hide/Lock buttons to the right of the category name. For example,
to lock all Plants objects, select the Lock option to the right of
the Plants category.

Hidden objects are saved and loaded to/from disk normally. That is, you
can save your landscape with hidden objects, and the objects will remain hidden
when you later open the file.
Object visibility is specific to the current landscape design file. In
other words, changing the object visibility in one file will not affect any
