Hi, yes it's really a nice trick and it works. But I think the face will still be there (in memory at least). Maybe it's possible to assign a new layout to the named face.

Well, this works too but the other solution is smarter ;-)). I don't know how VID or /View (which one?) determines of a face needs to be drawn or not. Using hide makes it possible to use a very simple test, testing against off-screen coordinates may take longer... Robert
