    Select a Solid within a Component in the Structure tree. Open the Display Tab, to show the Layer it is on. This will only show the solids. It will not show Components. You can have solids on different layers within a Component. To assign a solid within a Component to a layer. Select the Solid. Open the Layers Tab, right click the layer you want it to be on. Assign to Layer. To hide a particular Layer turn the 'Bulb' icon on or off. To hide a Component use the check mark in the Structure tree.

    In the Display tab, there are other wonders...and i add this because it's only just now become clearer to me - AND it does it slightly differently, perhaps easier to if using layers...

    Select a face of a body , layer name is shown AND in the colour box, a layer symbol is shown...Note Body / Face or box selecting multiples is available either on screen or in the Structure Browser.

    With the symbol shown, it confirms the body colour and the default layer colour are the same. then to alter the body layer and automatically change the body colour to default for that layer, JUST choose another layer from the drop-down list...

    Sometimes, you may wish to change a Body colour - that's applying a colour override ... then the Disply Tab Colour box will NOT shown the 'Layer symbol graphic' - but you can still change it's layer by the drop down Layer list.

    Note: Any 2 or more selected items not on the same layer ( but still at default colours) Display tab results in White with Layers graphic symbol shown. Choose another layer moving all with change colour etc.

    To change it's colour to back to the default layer - select any face, and a display box / dialogue appears. Clicking the colour box opens up a colour pallette and transparancy chart.

    Hover mouse over 'Remove Body Colour Override' and observe a colour change to the default layer. Click to accept.

    Hope this helps...

    Thank you for the fast and detailed help.

    Yes the programm looks simple but there are some "hidden" powerfull functions and... I missed some of them.

    Please don't apologise over 'missing some functions'

    Behind the apparant initial simplicity, it takes constant practice to remember the plethora of divisional sub commands available... a bit like Sudoko , Suguru - such a simple concept.Here you can box select Bodies, Faces and even Curves moving from multiple layers onto just a single other.
