Hide element from Algebra view input list but not from graph?

When using the "graphing" app embedded, I would like to display two points in the graph, inserted using the API, then ask the viewer to graph an equation for the line passing through those points.

I would like the points to show on the graphing view, but would prefer the "A = (1,3)" command used to plot it not show in the left-hand input list (the Algebra View, if I'm getting the term right).

Is this possible? The idea is to have some elements in the graph, like the points, that can't be easily edited by the viewer.

Thanks!

Best option is probably to hide the AV and use dynamic texts to show the objects you want


2nd best: set the objects to "Auxilliary" to hide them from the AV

The "Auxiliary" is exactly what I was looking for, thanks!
