Adjusting Column Visibility

Showing and hiding columns with View.

Introduction

When creating a View, you can opt to control the visibility of columns. These can be fully hidden while you are working with your data, hidden on both current and output Views, or initially hidden (but visible when required).

The dialog displayed (shown above) will indicate the current state of each column, and also provide a quick route to the visibility of as many columns as you wish. Simply set the appropriate menus to your desired values and click the Apply button.
