OOk the features are turned off in the assembly

to turn them on :-

lclick on th icon in the model tree with the hammer

Lclick on the tree filters...

LClick on Features

lclick apply

lclick OK

now when you click on the drop down menu next to your part all the features should be visible.

good luck

In the assembly model tree, right click on the part you want to edit and, from the floating menu, select Activate. A green diamond appears next to the part to show it is active. When done editing the part, activate the top level assembly.

Ok I was able to activate the part i want to edit, but I can't see the part model tree to edit for example a curve or the depth of an extrusion. Is there a way?

Hi can you see any of the features ( extrudes etc) in the model tree?

No, the only thing that I can see when I activate a component ( as suggested by Timothy ) is a green diamond indicating the part is active to edit. The screen changes with all the options of extrude, sweep, etc.. but I cant see the model tree of the specific component i want to edit and for that reason I cant edit the part. Here is a screen shotscreenshot1.PNG
