How can I change visibility of multiple selected objects (let say paths) at once? Is there any shortcut for this?

Thank you

If on mac, select the objects and press Cmd + 3. Or Ctrl + 3 if you're on Windows.

To reveal all hidden objects press Cmd + alt + 3 (Mac) or Ctrl + alt + 3 (Win)

Thanks a lot, it works (I'm on Windows). But now I figure out that I have troubles making a selection of multiple objects from Layers Panel. I've tried Ctrl+Shift+Click which doesn't seems to do anything. Can't find similar shortcut for this action. Any suggestions? – venta7 Aug 18 '14 at 11:45
In the layers panel: click to select one object then shift-click to select another object and everything in between it and the original object will be selected. To add individual objects to the selection use ctrl-click. – oscarpas Aug 18 '14 at 13:52
@venta7 Simply clicking on object names in the Layers panel will select those objects for interaction within the layers panel only (e.g., moving objects to a new layer). To make a selection on your artboards via the layers panel, click the circle next to the object name. Ctrl-Click will select multiple elements, Ctrl-Shift-Click will select a range. – apex Aug 18 '14 at 18:35
