Filter Based On Catalogs?

I'm just trying out XEphem for the first time, and am pretty impressed with it.

One question I have: is it possible to set up a filter based on catalog? As a specific example, suppose I want to get XEphem to display all of the Messier objects, but no other deep sky objects. Is it possible do this without removing the NGS.edb catalog from my /usr/local/xephem/catalogs directory? I've played around with the interface a bit, and haven't yet figured out how to do something like this.

Thanks,
