Hide paths but still show text

To hide a path but have its text still shown, add the hidden CSS class to the path’s attributes.

You can do this via different methods:

  1. Path.attr()
  2. Path.addClass()
  3. Path.setclass()
path1.attr('class', 'hidden')

Setting the hidden CSS class causes the path to be invisible but still included in the drafted pattern. Because the CSS classes for the text are independent from the CSS classes for the path, the text will still appear even though the path is invisible.

(Hiding a path via Path.hide() or Path.setHidden() will not work for this purpose. These methods will cause both the path and its accompanying text to be omitted when the pattern is drafted.)
