There should be an easier method when you have to add a balloon to an existing stack. When you want them in numerical order, instead of removing the out of order balloons and then adding them back in including the addition,
you should be able to just add the balloon and select where in the stack you want to place it.
With all of the options there are for importing igs, step and parasolid parts into Inventor, there are no options to select which template shuold be used once this part is imported. Quite often a user will have different tempaltes depending on the operation or units being used. There should be an addition under the open dislog to allow a user to select which template they would like to use. Whether it is a custom one or the default out of the box. Just give us the freedom to select.

In a part, if you suppress a feature, the sketch is not automatically suppressed. This allows suppressed geometry (sketches in most cases) to generate errors. When I suppress something, it's usually because I don't want it active anymore.
I would like the sketch or any other subcomponent of the feature to be suppressed when the feature is suppressed.
Autodesk, please fix your broken "Look at Sketch" feature, which currently rotates the camera in asinine fashion such that your little labeled viewcube is upside down, where "up" is actually "down".
When I create a sketch on the "right" plane, the "look at" feature should cause 'up' to be 'up' (RIGHT should be right-side-up on the viewcube). When I create a sketch on the top plane, down should be forward (TOP should be right-side-up on the viewcube).
This problem has been in existence for at least four years with no fix. This seems like an exceedingly simple problem. Please fix the problem.
Currently if you have a UCS and then derive that part, the individual axes and planes can come over for each UCS, but not the entire UCS. This prohibits the ability to then easily use that UCS for placement of the derived part. Please bring in the entire UCS from a derive operation.
Not sure how this would be done, but it sure would be nicve if there was a clean way to insert ones own custom weld symbole into the drop down of the current weld symbol configuration.

I'd love to make the team a "hole" allowed to build the holes on curved surfaces too, and not only on the edges. let it be a separate team. Create such openings making additional constructions and use the command "rotate" or "squeezing" is not good.
It would be really useful to have the ability for Hole Tables to pickup the center point/mark on a slot.
I.e. if I draw a center point slot, then place the part on a drawing and generate a hole table, have the center point of the slot appear in the Hole Table as per hole features.
I know I can add center marks to the end arcs of the slot, which can be picked up in the Hole Table, but this gives me two centers on the slot and not the actual center point!
We require the ability to disable (wiithout ability for users to bypass) all Autodesk 360 cloud features. This is a security risk for my industry and would not be allowed per government regulations.
I would like to know if there are shortcuts for select views of the viewcube.
I don't looking shortcuts for select views of the viewcube to keyboard tab.
For example, I press F key to see front view.
I want to make this shortcuts for all views of the cube.
When you click on a face in a part, I would like the feature to automatically highlight in the model tree. Currently, if you don't know how the part was created you have to cycle thru the features until you see it highlight on the model. A "find in model tree" could also be used.
I would like to RMB on the projected curve and have the option to highlight or name the source feature in the tree.
Very often I have to edit models with very long and complicated trees. Sketches often have projected geometry from other sketches or edges that were consumed far up in the tree. Identifying the source of the projected curve can often be very difficult.
Using the "FIND" feature in Inventor is something I "find" (no pun intended) myself using more and more. Now maybe I'm missing something and don't know how to use it properly, and if that's the case, maybe someone that has good experience using it can "enlighten" me on the way to do things. What I would like to see changed in that "FIND" feature is to have the Feature Tree "expand" all areas where the component(s) you are searching for is/are found. I have found that when I want to locate a feature in my Feature Tree and the Assembly is large, making the list in the Feature Tree long, and I use the "FIND" feature to locate the part the Feature Tree DOES NOT expand to the located components once the search has completed. I have to manually go through the Tree and expand all sub-assemblies and patterns to locate the highlighted items that were found. It's a pain to have to do that, especially when you're "weeding" through the list to see what was found. Making the Feature Tree "expand" to everything that contains the located component would be awesome.
Have a Solid body of a part cut when placing in a assembly. So I would propose you could create solid bodies in a part with pre-fixes then when placed into a assembly in the desired postion you could remove material based on the pre-fixes from the parts it is intersecting and if the part or sub assembly is moved you could update.
