Browser Folders in Part Environment

Status: Accepted
by Valued Contributor MattH_Work on ‎02-14-2013 06:15 AM

Whilst I appreciate that we cannot move features up & down the browser without changing the Part (we are free to move components up & down in the Assembly, therefore browser folder 'restructurng' has no impact), it would be nice to have a second browser (ala the Vault browser) where we can sort, reorder, add to folders, the content of a file (group all extrusions, revolves, sketches etc)

Even if this was just a visual  display of the 'sorted' feature tree with no editing capability (maybe a right click option to 'Goto Feature' in main browser for editing) it would make it easier for finding, renaming etc

At the top of the part browser tree there are folders automatically created for Solid Bodies and Surface Bodies. Two more automatic folders for Construction Geometry (planes, points axis etc.) and Sketches would be very useful

I also think more automatic folders for Sketches, Work Planes, and Work Axis would be very useful.

I would like to have the ability to create custom folders in the .ipt browser exactly like you can in an assembly.  For example, if I have a bunch of work points I should be able to highlight the points, right click and selece "Add to Folder".  Just like in an assmbly.
