Turning elements of the display on and off

You can turn a number of elements of the display on and off instantly using display switches. You may want to turn specific elements of the display off momentarily before redisplaying them for a variety of reasons. For example, you may want to turn off the display of links, float, or of the critical path before printing a project, to keep this potentially sensitive information from certain people who may see the printout.
