Hide facet lines after saving to .stl

Hey There, 

After saving a part to an .stl file, creo leaves the part with facet outlines. How do I get rid of them without closing the part and reopening?

When you create a .stl file, that's exactly what it does, triangulates everything.  I know of no way to "un-facet" it.  That's why these files should ONLY be used for 3D printing.

Repaint (CTRL+R). This should erase the triangles from the display.
