You can do it, but not through "Hide All Pieces." You must create your
own new "Hide All Pieces" button, and here's how.

In the editor, find the "Game Piece Layers" item. (If you aren't using
it, you should, but that's another discussion.) Make sure all your
control markers are in a layer (or layers) different from the pieces you
want to hide. (This is not a the piece Layer trait. That's completely
different and unrelated.)

Right-click the Layers item to select "Add Game Piece Layers Control."
Change the button text to something like "Hide" and maybe find a nice
globe icon. For Action, choose "Switch Layer between Active and
inactive." Then list the layers you want to hide--not the layers with
your markers.

This will create a toolbar button that does what you want. You might
want to delete the usual Hide button to avoid confusion.
