Hello! My problem is that I want to display some of the TF and hide others. I can do it by selecting what I want by hand, but if I want to save it in a .rviz file and launching it with rosrun rviz rviz -d my_config.rviz, it display all my tf.

The .rviz file is well saved, here is an abstract of the /TF class in the my_config.rviz :

Visualization Manager:
Class: ""
    - Alpha: 0.5
      Cell Size: 1
      Class: rviz/Grid
      Color: 160; 160; 164
      Enabled: true
      Line Style:
        Line Width: 0.03
        Value: Lines
      Name: Grid
      Normal Cell Count: 0
        X: 0
        Y: 0
        Z: 0
      Plane: XY
      Plane Cell Count: 10
      Reference Frame: <Fixed Frame>
      Value: true
    - Class: rviz/TF
      Enabled: true
      Frame Timeout: 15
        All Enabled: false

              Value: false
              Value: false
              Value: true

"my_config.rviz" is the right one loaded ( I tried to add and remove a display type to be sure ), and I am using the rviz version 1.11.7 (indigo), Compiled against OGRE version 1.8.1 (Byatis).

I've experienced this as well. This appears to be a bug: (rather, a bug report has been filed).
