Filters are designed to work more efficiently on the model on the 3D view. While the objects selected or marked in the model view are hidden with the object filters, it is also possible to hide the stories other than the active story. In addition, the model can be examined by switching to full screen mode and separating the entire screen into the perspective window.
The filter icon in the upper right corner of the 3D perspective window is used to close and open objects. When the icon is clicked, the Filter dialog opens.
