Is it possible to show surfaces in a drawing view of an ipart member - although the option of include all surfaces is there I can't get them to show. Similar issue with showing sketches - get model sketches is there but nothing can be shown.

Really would appreciate some help on this guys it is drving me wild!

I found some stuff which says to try using imates so will try that. Should have checked all the threads first!

OK so that was all to do with the surfaces not showing in assemblies, I'm interested in the drawing side of things - all the other threads seem to lead to nowhere so still searching for a definitive yes/no! I just dont understand why even though all the information is there it can not be used in the drawing!
