# Giving planes thickness in real-time display

I've got a bunch of planes that are perfectly lined up with the coordinate space, so I can't see them when I go to either front, side, or top view. Is it possible to give planes some thickness for the real-time display, just so I don't lose track of them when I'm editing other meshes?

I can imagine giving them all a thickness modifier that is disabled for rendering, but that seems like a big pain in the neck.

• You could disable the axis lines with 3D view > Properties region (N)> Display > Only Render, but this will disable a lot of other stuff too. – gandalf3 Nov 1 '13 at 0:45
