This is yet another erasing routine but there is a warning that goes along with it. You don’t actually select anything. Instead, whatever your cursor hovers over gets erased. So if you don’t have a steady hand, then this routine will be dangerous for you… HAHA!!

instead of erase objects can you create a AutoLISP that will hide objects that you hover over.
