Feature Manager Design Tree

In part documents, you can set the Feature Manager Design tree to show features in the order they were created, instead of hierarchically.

Right-click in the Feature Manager Design tree and click Tree Display > Show Flat Tree View. In Flat Tree View, curves, 2D sketches, and 3D sketches are not absorbed into the features that reference them. Instead, they are shown in the order of creation.

Note: Flat tree is only available for parts.

The Unflatten version is shown below.
