When you are creating a huge scene sometimes the editor starts to slow down and/or starts to become a huge mess of objects or lines.
One way to speed up the editor or mo make it less cluthered is to go to the Filter menu of any viewport and turn off any type of objects that may be slowing down things or just messing up the display.
The problem with this is that the Display Filter menu is not capable of being disconnected and changed into a floating panel. So, you would need to go back to the Display Filter menu to turn on/off each option.
That is why I created the Display Filter ON/OFF plugin.
It displays a panel with all the options of the internal Display Filter and you can dock this panel in your layout for easy access.
To save space in the layout, the display options are
split in two tabs. The first tab contains the options that are used more often. The second tab contains the options that are not used as often.
Turning on and off the options in the Display Filter ON/OFF panel, will turn on and off the corresponding options in the Display Filter menu.
If you realize that you recurrently use a specific set of options, you can save that set for later and easier retrieval. To save the set, press the Save Set button, type a descriptive name and click on Ok (pressing Enter or Return will NOT save the set).
The sets are saved in a Sets folder, inside the Display Filter ON/OFF plugin folder.
To delete any set that you don't need any more, simply delete the corresponding file from that folder. The files have the name that you set with "_set" added at the end.
