Show Component Descriptions

You can display component descriptions in the FeatureManager design tree in part, assembly, and drawing documents and in the ConfigurationManager of parts and assemblies.

To show component descriptions:

At the top of the FeatureManager design tree, right-click the part, assembly, or drawing name, and select Tree Display > Show Component Descriptions.
The FeatureManager design tree displays the component names.
  • By default, component descriptions are the same as the component names and are not displayed. You must specify a new component description in the component part file for it to appear in the FeatureManager design tree. See Summary Information - Custom and Configuration Specific.
  • Component descriptions appear only if Description (the default) is selected in Custom property used as custom description in the General system options. You can select a different item for Custom property used as custom description, but you must set a value for that custom property on the Custom tab of the Summary Information dialog box. See Summary Information.
