PokeIt is a MicroStation VBA application. It's used to select, isolate or hide elements based on their attributes, such as level, color, line style, etc. The filter criterion is populated from a selected, or "poked," element rather than from a list in a dialog box.
PokeIt is also used to create elements similar to a selected element.
There are also a couple of additional “bonus” commands, Invert Selection and Fence Subset.
The interface of PokeIt is the context menu, accessed with a right press and hold on an element..

Tim. Daft question but where do I need to locate these files do that user can use Pokeit?
Because you have a customised Workspace, it is easier if you look for the paths for the following 2 variables and copy the 2 files from the zip file to the corresponding folder.
I have tried the Hide option on a new file with simple shapes and it works OK. However, it struggles with complex data in a reference file. So are reference files elements supported by your app.
It seems to go through the motions but then selects something different and nothing hides
