Show Feature Descriptions

You can display feature descriptions in the FeatureManager design tree.

To show feature descriptions:

At the top of the FeatureManager design tree, right-click the part, assembly, or drawing name, and select Tree Display, Show Feature Descriptions.

By default, feature descriptions are the same as the feature names and are not displayed. You must specify a different feature description in order for it to appear in the FeatureManager design tree.

To change a feature description in a part or assembly document:

  1. Right-click the feature in the FeatureManager design tree and select Feature Properties.

  2. In the dialog box, edit the text in Description, then click OK.

You cannot change feature descriptions in drawing documents. Descriptions specified in part and assembly documents are displayed in drawing documents when you select Tree Display, Show Feature Descriptions in the drawing document.
