How do you show the Degrees of Freedom glyphs on a sketch?

This page mentions the degrees of freedom glyphs, but it doesn't say how to show them, and I couldn't find any ribbon button or context menu item that mentions them.

This page describes how to do it.


- with no geometry selected, right-click and select Show All Degrees of Freedom. This displays DOF for all geometry in the sketch.

- select the geometry you are interested in, right-click and select Display Degrees of Freedom. This displays glyphs for the selected geometry only.


I'll update the page you mentioned to include the procedure.
