Sadly, I no longer use Inventor as I have now switched jobs & I'm currently using Unigraphics NX7.5
However, you would have thought that a high end CAD package like NX could do simple things - but you would be wrong!
I've been using Autodesk Inventor since release 4. Even that release had more features than NX.
My major issue with it is the drafting side- its feels so outdated & its extremely unintuitive.
NX cannot change a part units from mm to inch & visaversa
NX cannot (easily) auto-dimension (actually show a thread size) a threaded hole on the drawing even though it generates it on the model.
Show a centre of gravity.
Dispay section/cut view (in the 3D model) across more than one plane.
Cannot display different text heights or fonts in a single line of text.
Doesnt show what constraints are applied to a certain part, only lists all of them at the top of the model tree
Of course there are quite a few things that it does very well.
I miss Inventor!
I hope that one day I will use it again. Even Solidworks is better!
