I can't find an option to hide boundaries in Show/Hide. I would like one.

I was looking for this option too. It seems that it was available in the previous versions

Have you solved the problem ?

Nope. I have just encountered it again.

I could make the boundaries the same colour as the background as a workaround.

Seems odd that it is not on the Show/Hide list.

But the Format Boundary - Line Colour is not applied to all boundaries by using the Save in Default Theme for this Map.

Andrew,

I have just written two small macros that will do this for you.

One to Show and one to Hide.

To use them select the TOPIC that the Boundary contains. If the boundary is currently visible the hide macro will make the Boundary Fill and the Boundary Line Color the same as the Map background making it appear invisible.

If the Boundary is not visible the macro will make the Boundary Line Color the same as the Topic Line Color so you can once again see it and select it easily.

The ability to hide boundaries is still missing and irritating me. I have just used View > Power Filter to hide all subtopics in a map prior to an export and a now meaningless boundary on a main topic is still visible.

So perhaps there is a second issue when all the subtopics in a boundary are hidden the boundary, should also be hidden. needs to be an option because sometimes you can have meaningful boundary on a Main Topic with no subtopics.
