Viewport Show Flags

Choose your OS:

ShowFlagHeader.png

The Show Flags are found under the Viewport Show menu. They are a means by which you can show and hide many of the items that are viewed within the viewport. For example, you can hide all particles, all landscape objects, or something a bit more advanced like turning off all of the sprite icons.
