Show Flat Pattern Problem

Hi All. It's my first time using sheet metal in a drawing and I can't figure out how to show flat pattern in the drawing. When I insert the base view into my drawing, the bottom to "Sheet Metal View" to "Flat Pattern" is shown, but it's ghosted out so I can't select it. Is there something I have to do in the part drawing in order to activate this feature? Thanks in advance for any replies.

You have to have a Flat Pattern node in the browser of the part file.

Attach your file here if you can't figure it out.

Huge thanks for the direction to the manual. Read the file and it exaplains everything. I'm terrible with finding things in the manual. Thanks again. - AJ
