Yeah, I’ve been annoyed with this too. Wondering if there’s any way to use Fenric’s ERC control so that if you set the root of the armature to visible=0 it could apply the same to all the descendants - though if I remember correctly, this might only affect a direct line of children (tail 1, tail 2, tail 3 . . .) so wouldn’t help with siblings (think you’d need a sepearate one for each finger and toe for instance. Just thinking out loud here. I’ve often wanted to get rid of that armature myself.
