Station containers are used to sort out a hangar for those of us with OCD or too much stuff. But it can be annoying at time when you have a lot of junk from a salvage run and you have to select around your cans less you trash it by accident or something of the sort.

Give us the option to make station cans viewable/invisible in the item hangar so that they don't have to be in the way all the time. They would still appear on the left side menu, much like a corporations hangar menu is, but they can't be selected when you are viewing everything in your hangar. Of course, if you wished to make them visible, you could do so from the left side menu by right clicked and setting the option from the drop down menu.

But I would ask for an option to apply it to all containers.

"Only show containers in drop down menu" or something

You might be able to set a filter that filters them out while leaving everything else... which would be a PITA for a normal player, but probably would satisfy that OCD mofo.

As for the idea: I've more than once exploded my hangar by repackaging all my containers, and then spent too much time resorting crap back into place again. I fully support this feature request!

It's the small changes that sometimes make the biggest impact.
