WF 5.0 handling of layers with inheritance features

WF 5.0 is not behaving like WF 2.0, 3.0 or 4.0 with respect to how it is handling layers. My particular case is that using TDD techniques where your first feature is an "inheritance" that drives the design of the part.



In previous versions of WF, i would simple put the inheritance on a layer as a feature. When i would tell the layer to be hidden, it would hide. Hey expected behaviour....i like it.



in WF 5.0 when i use this same approach, and i attempt to SHOW or HIDE (no "unhide" is not a word) that layer, the layer does NOT react until i attempt to create afeature then cancel the feature. Then the layer display state in the Graphics window will actually matchwhat the layer tree shows. This is very much an annoyance. Everytime i want to show or hide the layer i have to :


toggle the layer status that i want


initiatea dummy feature


cancel the dummy feature



WF 4.0 did NOT do this.


any fixes? config.pro settings?


thanks in advance
