Reordering Features

You can change the order in which features are rebuilt by dragging them in the FeatureManager design tree.

As you drag up or down the tree, each item that you drag over highlights. The feature name that you are moving drops immediately below the currently highlighted item when you release the pointer.

If the reorder operation is legal, a pointer appears; if it is not legal, a pointer appears.
A reorder operation is legal as long as the parent feature precedes its child feature.

You can create folders in the FeatureManager design tree, and drag features into the folders.

The Cut-Extrude feature was made before the Shell feature was added. In the FeatureManager design tree, the Shell feature icon was dragged and dropped before the Cut-Extrude icon.
