Openstudio hide rest of model but still make CAD outline visible

Hello All,

I am currently working on drawing the building with the openstudio sketchup tools. The 2nd floor is layed out differently than the first floor, so I need to make some changes- and I would like to be able to use the floorplan that I imported from a DWG file as a guide. The floorplans show up just fine when I'm drawing the outline of the building, but When I click into a room and 'hide rest of model' to modify part of the second floor, the imported floorplan outline dissapears. Is there anyway I can keep this outline visible while I'm making the changes to the 2nd floor?

A couple of ideas that might help 1. try turning off the OpenStudio > Rendering > Hide Rest of Model 2. try hiding level 1 spaces (select, right click, Hide)
