Highlighting Related Bodies or Surfaces in Multibody Parts

In multibody parts, if you select a body or surface in the graphics area, the corresponding item is highlighted in the Cut-List-Item folder, the Solid Bodies FM_solid_bodies.gif or Surface Bodies FM_surface_bodies.gif folder, and the feature name in the FeatureManager design tree. The highlighting helps you identify which body or surface was selected, especially if you are working with large weldments and cut lists.

Although the body or surface is highlighted in the folders, it is not selected.
