Hi Jiri,
You didn’t say what kinds of display are involved.  For atoms/bonds, molecular surface patches, and ribbon segments, one way is with commands:

~disp ~sel
~surf ~sel
~ribbon ~sel

(undisplay, unsurface, and unribbon the unselected parts).   Or, another way is to invert the selection, menu: Select… Invert ( two choices, invert everything or only inside the models with parts already selected), and then use the Actions menu on the new selection.

I hope this helps,
