Block viewing settings
Hi everyone,

I would like to ask, whether there is an option for selecting only certain blocks to show.
All blocks are part of "FLUID", but there are many of them and they look chaotic.

Is there any way to select a limited number of them for showing (and selecting association)?

Thanks in advance!

try to use index control, right click on blocking in tree ->index control.

Other options...
Twix is right, Index Control is the main way. You can also blank blocks or even create block subsets. A 4th way would be to create other fluid regions (such as FLUID1, FLUID2, FLUID3, etc.) and put blocks into these regions along with a shared wall setting to avoid face projection between the regions.
