Rather than having to do a query filter on a feature class to display slected features only there should be a facility to display selected features only. i.e. if using select by attribute tool to select a number of features I should then be able to click a botton to display these features only. This should also apply to manually selected features. This would be extremely useful when creating maps for small areas within a feature class as it would then be very easy to hide features outside the selected area of interest.
This idea has been merged with Hide or display records selected.
