Freezing Features

You drag the freeze bar to freeze features.

To turn on the freeze bar, click Tools > Options > System Options > General and select Enable Freeze bar.

To freeze features:

  1. Move the pointer over the freeze bar.
    The pointer changes to .

  2. Drag the freeze bar down below the last feature you want to freeze.
    When the freeze bar is at the top of the tree, you can also right-click a feature and click Freeze to freeze that feature and all features above it in the FeatureManager design tree.

    Features above the freeze bar are frozen – you cannot edit them, and they are excluded from rebuilds of the model. Frozen features are indicated by a lock icon and gray text.
